Cura 3.6, Unable to import old proflies


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.6, Unable to import old proflies

HI all, I was recently put in charge of the relatively new Axiom20 printer our company has. However the Apex software (based off old Cura) is having issues. I found the profiles (.ini files)) and tried to follow Ultimakers guide for importing profiles but I get the error: <message>Unable to import legacy profile. Multi extrusion is not supported</message> . I tried Cura 3.51 but that just said there was no valid profile. Does anyone have any ideas on how to bypass this to import?

    You're trying to import a single extrusion profile to a multi extrusion machine. The old Cura didn't have multi extrusion, so there just isn't a way to do the conversion (or well, there is, but it's way too complex to put all of that in code).

    I am also having this problem. I am using the Axiom Dual and I would like to be able to import the profiles into Cura to be able to slice from the command line. Or at least be able to use Octoprint to slice for me. I try to import the ini file from Apex into Cura and it tells me that multi extrusion is not supported. The Axiom Dual is a dual hot-end machine.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
