Profile not supported by Cura 4.4.0


Recommended Posts

Posted · Profile not supported by Cura 4.4.0



Everything works fine with Cura 3.6.0. Now, I just installed Cura 4.4.0 as I was interested in the Profiles, first and foremost the Engineering profile. 

I use Ultimaker filaments, black tough PLA and normal PVA, but it is not located at the back of my Ultimaker 3E, but in a Polybox. Unfortunately, Cura 4.4.0 says "profile not supported".

I suspect Cura require that the printer recognize the filament at its back.

What to do?

    Go into PREPARE mode.  Across the top (just under "prepare") on the left core click there and instead of having it auto detect your filament type, select the filament manually.


    I suspect the intent profiles are only for PLA and only for the AA 0.4 nozzle but maybe there are more.  "tough pla" might not have the "engineering" profile but you can print TPLA with PLA settings just fine.

    Many thanks gr5. 


    Problem partly but not entirely solved, unfortunately. 

    I found that for some reason, Cura 4.4.0 had changed printhead 2 to AA 04 (PVA was selected). When I changed back to BB 04, I can see three profiles - Fine, Normal and Fast, regardless if I choose Tough PLA "generic" or "Ultimaker".  When I try PLA for printhead 1, I can also see the "Extra fine" in addition to the others, "Fine, Normal and Fast". No other profiles can be seen. 

    During installation of 4.4.0, I chose to keep my profiles. If that is the problem - can I erase all old profiles in 4.4.0? 

    (In Preferences/Profiles I can see Extra Fine, Fine Normal, Fast under Global settings. Under Extruder 1 and Extruder 2, no profiles are found).

    Yes I'm guessing you are right and you shouldn't have saved your profiles.  Not sure.  But anyway there is a folder - I forget where - on windows I think it's in %appdata% or roaming or something.  It has all the profiles for cura in there - if you delete everything in that cura folder (in %appdata%/cura - or similar) then restart cura it will create the proper default profiles automatically upon launching cura.

    I am hoping this fixes my issue as well, where I could get it to start the print, but the extruder stepper would not budge. I narrowed it down, through troubleshooting to a slicing error, but could not find it. SO I deleted all my profiles and reloaded Cura, tweaked the settings I KNOW i needed to and left everything else alone. Hope this helps, will test tomorrow.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
