How to remove an extension


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to remove an extension

I installed the 3DPrintLog.com extension in Cura 4.8 and I find it very annoying. It pops up a query box every time I save a file. Also I thought it was a local data save. Instead you have to open an account and on and on. Not interested.


I saw  post somewhere that said to go to the plugins directory and delete the folder with the appropriate name.  Cannot find a folder with the same name.  Two other folders have similar names, don't want to delete something important. Uninstalled and reinstalled Cura a couple times, deleting settings and not deleting settings. Neither worked.


Thank you

    The official way to uninstall a plugin is via the "Installed" tab of the Marketplace window. Manually removing files from the configuration folder could have adverse effects (like Cura still informing you of updated versions of the plugin that you removed)

    So I just installed a pile of plugins (yea, I know, I should do them one at a time). One of them, I don't know which, is constantly crashing Cura. I cannot get to the MArketplace. What is the best way to remove them?

    You can delete the folder of the plugin one by one to find the faulty plugin . In Users\AppData\Roaming\cura\5.X\plugins


    Or look in the Log File if a message gives you a clue on the issue.

      • 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
