Where did my Profiles go?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Where did my Profiles go?



This one has me stumped.

My peers send me the Cura Projects so I can open them and see the print settings, model and how everything is set for their print request.


One thing I notice, even if I close out and start new, is the various Profiles are missing.  Such as the 0.1 , etc etc...   How do I get these back?

    Due to the nature of my work I can't.


    I just tried adding an Ultimaker S5 again and now I have them back (didn't work previously but closed and restarted Cura)


    We're trying to use a workflow where they send me their project so I can see the model and Cura settings (similar to what we do with S3D).  This way if their settings are incorrect, I can either make changes...or if it is quicker to use one of Cura's built in profiles, I can use that.


    Is that a good process or do you advise another method?

    Yeah that is a good workflow, which is also why I'm asking for the project file.

    Anyhow. Could you just send a project file without the model in it? I'm just interested in what profiles are active (since that is where the problem is).

    My guess is that somewhere you have a BB nozzle selected for a material that doesn't need it. That's usually why and when this happens.

    That's an interesting point.

    The user didn't match what the S5 had loaded for Cores and Materials.

    I changed them over via the Settings menu but then lost the profiles in doing so.

      • 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
