4.2.1 and 4.3.0 Automatic Updates to Profiles, Printer, and Material


Recommended Posts

Posted · 4.2.1 and 4.3.0 Automatic Updates to Profiles, Printer, and Material

How can I stop Cura 4.3.0 from "Updating" the Printer, Profile, and Material, each time I open the project?  I DO NOT want the project to "UPDATE" nor do I want it to "Create New".  How do I stop Cura from changing all of the settings in the profile when I open a project.  I think that 4.0 did not do this.  

 

Is my methodology of using the software incorrect?  It seems that I will have hundreds of profiles for the same project if I have to select "Create New" when open an older project so that I can keep my printer setting the same.

 

Hopefully I'm explaining the issue well enough.

 

Thanks

    A Cura project file is a 3mf file and contains the model and the print settings.

    Your description sounds like you want to load only the model, but not the settings from the file.

    This behavior can be changed in the "Preferences" dialog.

    That did the trick!!!  It appears this setting was not carried over (maybe not avaialble) on V4.0 when I upgrade to 4.2.1 and then 4.3.0.  I've seen this question asked a few other places on different forums with no answer.  I'll spread the news!

     

    Thanks so much!
