Importing Profiles from 3.6.0 to 4.8.0 or newer

Hello All,


I've been using 3.6.0 forever and I'm attempting to export all my profiles to 4.8.0. (3.6.0 started being weird..  saying Configuration is corrupt with the profile for fdmextruder #2 and I don't know how to fix it so I'm moving to a newer version) However, 4.8.0 keeps giving me error messages and cannot import the old profiles. It says the one of the quality modes  is incompatible with current active machine definition- Creality Base (I use a Cr10).


Sorry if this is a repost, this is my first time posting on the forum, I don't often come here!


Thanks so much to anyone who can help!

    Yes it's because the Quality type  Fast or Draft doesn't exist anymore in the newest versions of the Creality printer definition  ( You can say thank you to the guy who have updated these profiles in Cura 4.2 f....g Creawsomemode ) 


    So now your old profile are not reconized anymore. And due to the management system of the parameter in cura if you don't have this initial quality configuration you cannot use anymore these profiles.


    Solution N°1 : Add the quality missing definitions files in the Cura definitions for the creality printer. But A) you need to have certain nowledge and B)  this operation must be done for every new release of Cura


    Solution N°2 : try to list the configuration present in this profile and  restart from the standard profile.

    I had a feeling it wasn't going to be compatible... sucks and cause I have many different profiles I use. Well anyways, thanks for the help!

      • 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
