Trying to create a new custom profile for a new printer. Having issues with machine qualities...


Recommended Posts

Posted · Trying to create a new custom profile for a new printer. Having issues with machine qualities...

So I got a SecKit SKGo2 printer. I've being playing with Cura definitions to create a custom profile for it and got something working at one point by copying data from the Creality Ender3 pro and modifying it from there. But I was never able to create custom machine qualities (Ie .: Extra Fine, Fine, Normal,Draft, etc..)

So what I did is to strip down my config to the minimum and tried to add qualities from there, but without success.. Cura is not reading / adding the quality file I made even after deleting appdata/roaming/cura and appdata/localdata/cura. If anyone could help me that would be nice :)

 

Please remember this is a stripped down version just to try to make de qualities to work

definition file : SecKit_SKGo2.def.json

{
    "name": "SecKit_SKGo2",
    "version": 2,
    "inherits": "fdmprinter",
    "metadata": {
        "visible": true,
        "author": "SecKit",
        "manufacturer": "SecKit",
		"file_formats": "text/x-gcode",
        "platform": "SecKit_bed.stl",
		"platform_offset": [-65, -32, -40],
        "has_machine_quality": true,
		"machine_extruder_trains": {
            "0": "SecKit_SKGo2_extruder"
        }   
    }
}

extruder file : seckit_skgo2_extruder.def.json (directly copied from the ender3)

{
    "version": 2,
    "name": "Extruder 1",
    "inherits": "fdmextruder",
    "metadata": {
        "machine": "SecKit_SKGo2",
        "position": "0"
    },

    "overrides": {
        "extruder_nr": { "default_value": 0 },
        "machine_nozzle_size": { "default_value": 0.4 },
        "material_diameter": { "default_value": 1.75 }
        
    }
}

and my quality file located under quality/SecKit_SKGo2/draft.inst.cfg

[general]
version = 2
name = SK_DRAFT
definition = SecKit_SKGo2

[metadata]
setting_version = 15
type = quality
quality_type = normal
weight = 0
material = generic_pla

[values]
layer_height = 2.2
wall_thickness = 1.05
top_bottom_thickness = 0.8
infill_sparse_density = 20
speed_print = 80
speed_layer_0 = =round(speed_print * 30 / 50)
speed_topbottom = =math.ceil(speed_print * 20 / 80)
cool_min_layer_time = 5
cool_min_speed = 10

 

 

Running Cura that way and adding the printer, I only see a quality called "Fine" thats has nothing to do with the dedicated quality I created...

And if I remove the ("has_machine_quality": true,), I get the defaults one located at the quality root folder.

 

Then, I tried to duplicate the ABAX PRi3 profile but thats event worst because I just don't understand how the custom qualities are applied for that printer since there is no reference at all to "has_machine_quality" and it can still go read the specific qualities for that printer anyone just to confuse me a little bit more. . . 

 

Any idea ?

 

Also, nothing specifically wrong (at least from my perspective) in the cura log file

    Is it a Cura 4.8 bug ?

    It is far more likely a bug in the tutorial.

     

    I have not checked the entire thing, but the first thing that strikes me is that they seem to be using Cura 3.6 and not telling you. Profiles have a way of saying what version of Cura they are for. The "setting_version" needs to match whatever the setting version is in the other profiles that come with the version of Cura you are running. For Cura 4.8, that setting_version needs to be 16, not 12.

    Posted · Trying to create a new custom profile for a new printer. Having issues with machine qualities...

    Does setting_version needs to be in the "quality" config files only ?

    Should the "version" variables from the definition, extruder, variants should also match "16" ?

     

    So I tried redoing it with "setting_version" set at "16" in the quality file with the exact same result. Cura opens and randomly apply a quality from the generic ones and doesn't show any other qualities from rather the generic or the custom ones... So close yet so far... I can't figure it....

     

     

    Definition:

    {
        "name": "seckit_skgo",
        "version": 2,
        "inherits": "fdmprinter",
        "metadata": {
            "visible": true,
            "author": "seckit",
            "manufacturer": "Seckit",
            "file_formats": "text/x-gcode",
            "machine_extruder_trains": {
                "0": "seckit_skgo2_extruder_0"
            },
    
            "has_materials": true,
            "has_variants": true,
            "has_machine_quality": true,
            "variants_name": "Nozzle Size",
    
            "preferred_variant_name": "0.4mm Nozzle",
            "preferred_quality_type": "standard",
            "preferred_material": "generic_pla"
            
        }
    }

    extruder:

    {
        "version": 2,
        "name": "Extruder 1",
        "inherits": "fdmextruder",
        "metadata": {
            "machine": "seckit_skgo",
            "position": "0"
        }
    
       }

    variant :

    [general]
    name = 0.4mm Nozzle
    version = 4
    definition = seckit_skgo
    
    [metadata]
    setting_version = 16
    type = variant
    hardware_type = nozzle
    
    [values]
    machine_nozzle_size = 0.4

    quality:

    [general]
    version = 4
    name = Low Quality
    definition = seckit_skgo
    
    [metadata]
    setting_version = 16
    type = quality
    quality_type = low
    material = generic_pla
    variant = 0.4mm Nozzle
    
    [values]
    machine_nozzle_size = 0.4
