sync issues


Recommended Posts

Been using CURA for a long time... new to using it with an Ultimaker account.


Trying to figure out what gets synced... I installed a fresh CURA copy, installed my usual plugin (Octoprint) and created my materials and added my custom printer and my materials. Synced. 


Did a full uninstall including deleting config folders then reinstalled. It saw I had used Octoprint plugin and installed that but none of my printers materials or print profiles were retained. So those clearly are not synced. 


CURA settings like currency setting, not synced. 


I manually exported my material profiles and my printing profiles to a local folder.


No way to export my printer profile??? Print profile yes, PRINTER profile no... Why can't a printer profile be exported?


Materials...  I created my materials, including cost info. When I imported from the export, the cost info was not retained. I looked through the profile data... not there. for some reason the cost info is in the cura.cfg file... which is not synced to my Ultimaker account mor is there a way to export and import that from what I can see. 


Am I missing something obvious?

      • 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
