Hello, I installed new version of CURA today, removed old version and... deleted my materials database...

Anyone can help me out? PLA, ABS... that's all I need 🙂

Don't know the parameters for sure...

 

Thx!

    Thx for your response!

    Problem is that I have no materials in my CURA 4.4 material settings. Only 1 material called "unknown" that I cannot edit.

    Tried to import several files from the material folder (for example: "generic_pla.xml.fdm_material"), program says Import done, but no results.

    Can someone export his material settings and give me that file to try? 

    This problem also makes that I cannot select material when I want to create a print file... 

     

    Thanks in advance!

    It seems you have somehow messed up your Cura installation. I would try to remove the user configuration folder of Cura and do a complete reinstallation.

    Don't forget the user configuration folder, I guess this it the problematic place.

    Tried to remove everything, all folders and made new installation (version 4.4).

    Same problem... have no materials, cannot add any materials, cannot import materials.

     

    Reinstalled version 4.2.1: everything looks fine! So I'll stay with that version for a while.

    Thanks anyway.. strange problem...

    That's really strange and I don't have any more ideas either.

    When you delete a couple of files by accident, and you discover it *immediately* afterwards, you can usually get them back with undelete-software. If you manually deleted the files, maybe they are still in the garbage bin, and you can recover them from there. But if you uninstalled or updated things with the official (un)installer, the files usually aren't in the bin. So you need that undelete-software to find them and restore them. This is not convenient to recover hundreds of files or complete installations, but it works reasonbly well for a couple of individual files. However, if the files have been deleted some time ago, and you did other work on that computer such as editing designs, or you installed new programs, then the old files may have been overwritten and be unrecoverable.

     

    If the files would sit on a server instead of your home-computer, maybe that server has shadow-copy software running in the background, with which you can recover deleted files up to several months ago. But that is not likely on a home computer. You might need to contact the administrator of the servers for the procedure to find the files.

     

    Better is of course to make a regular backup of your files, including programs and settings. Then you can get the missing or damaged files from there.

      • 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
