Problem Managing Profiles

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem Managing Profiles

I'm struggling to understand how profile management works.


I start off by duplicating a profile (for example, the default fine profile), then make a change to the layer height. I then save this and see the change reflected in the 'global settings' when clicking on 'manage profile':




However, under 'Extruder 1' the layer height is still showing the original profile layer height. No matter what I do I can't get the extruder layer height to change, why is this? It will slice using the global settings but I don't understand why the extruder is showing a different value to that which it will use.




This is in Cura 4.0 but the same happens in Cura 3.6.

I have had bad luck with profiles.  I recommend instead you do "file" "save" and it will save your entire project as a 3mf file.  Then when you later print something that needs a similar profile you find the 3mf file from the most similar profile and then delete the mesh and insert a new STL file.

That just looks like a display bug. Could you report it on github?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
