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.
