Cura profiles wrong in preferences. And is there a better way to compare?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura profiles wrong in preferences. And is there a better way to compare?

As you can see in the attached image, the summary in preferences says that the support pattern is triangles while it is actually zig zag. There's no star in the profile name so you can see it's not modified. I also noticed earlier under the 0.2mm profile that it said 0.1mm initial layer height at some point, but later displayed the correct 0.3mm (with no changes being made). I know I didn't just see it wrong because I was taking screenshots to compare the different profiles.


I'm trying to diagnose stringing issues that I have with my 0.1 and 0.05 profiles but not with my 0.2 profile. Is there any way to easily delta the different profiles and see where they're different? I tried exports first, but they're not all text. So then I stitched together screenshots for each and found one difference, but didn't realize until the end that they aren't displayed correctly.

    Have you changed filament or printer?

    There is a stack profile and might be this value for other filament of printer\extruder.

    I have the same trouble. I thought settings changed by chance and by itself. I don't notice when it occurs. It very annoy me.

    Take a look at my post to get after each slicing all the values used for the settings.




    After including the text generated by my script, do a slicing for each of your profiles ans save the values used.


    You can easily check the difference between them


    Anyway, following your picture, I see that there are a lot of modifiction from the custom printer.

    To simplify the management you'd better create a new myPrinters.def.json file with all all the more used specifics overriding the custom def.json file and create your printer not from the custom printer, but from your new 'myPrinters' printer

      • 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
