Cura 4.9 + Dremel 3D45, get config error but works :)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.9 + Dremel 3D45, get config error but works :)

I'm pretty new to 3D printing so I bought a Dremel 3D45 (good printer for noobs like me).


The supplied slicer (Cura old version) looked a bit limited compared to Cura 4.9 so I took the risk of

installing it.


First I tried on a Linux (ubuntu) machine but the "AppImage" blocked me from adapting

Cura 4.9 to the Dremel 3D45. So I went back to Windows 10 version. Managed to copy the needed

.json files to Cura 4.9 and despite the "Config error" messages it seems to work.


Had to manually type in all the parameters (sigh). Cura 4.9 refused to accept my modified Ultra Quality

0.05mm profile from the previous software due to "high" quality not available. Should I transfer the "High 0.1mm"

profile first and then Ultra may be?


Imported a part and Cura 4.9 made the gcode as I wanted. It's printing now 🙂 Hopefully without too many glitches.


Looks like the inital error configuration message is a bit exagerated (so far, time will show).

    The 3d print came out just fine! I will definitely continue using 4.9.

    Got to transfer all required profiles, hopefully 4.9 will accept those

    with 0.3, 0.2 and 0.1mm. Maybe the trick would be to increase 0.05

    to 0.2 temporary and then import ... stupid me ... it was a bit late ...

    to my excuse!

    Upgraded to Cura 4.9.1. Found some bugs in 4.9 but did not reach to report them before 4.9.1 came out.


    Tip to others who might do the same, don't uninstall the original Dremel slicer. Why? Because every time

    Cura is updated You got to do the same copy of Dremel files to the Ultimaker Cura new version.


    Beware the support ZigZag pattern may cause nozzle clogging on circular parts with small overhangs.

    Struggled a lot before I realized this ...


    So don't wast time doing a lot of useless fix like this dude
