Hey Folks,  I lost access to the laptop that I had been doing my slicing on.   I have a new laptop that I am now using with the same version of Cura (4.2.1), using the same STL files, Same 3d printer.  I have a gcode that i saved ,on the original laptop. that prints perfect.  Re-slicing this file on the new laptop using the same STL files and importing the profile from the existing working file generates a gcode that doesn't print well.  So I'm thinking some settings come across in the import of the profile.   Looking at the end of the gcode where the profile is stored I can see some differences but I don't know a good way to read it. 

 

Does each of the \\ indicate a different variable?  

Thanks for any help provided

 

Here is the end of the gcode of the working file

    Well I broke each file down at each\\ putting one variable per line.  Then I ran both files through a compare program.  All the values are the same.  They are in different orders sometimes but they have all the same information.  

     

    So now I got to figure out what I'm missing and why its not printing the same getting sliced on this new laptop.   I must be missing something.
