in 4.10 i had cleaned up the C:\Users\Wim\AppData\Roaming\cura\4.10\materials to my liking to the point where Cura only showed the ones I used, and setup myself. Now after 4.11 all those (to me useless) material brands like  "3DFuel, Best Filament, eMotionTech" are back and they're not in the \materials folder for 4.11. Can't seem to get rid of them either through the marketplace \ materials tab.

 

Where are they stored, so i can get rid of them. I don't need or want them.

    I guess they were synced from the marketplace after you have installed Cura.

    When you are logged in and you delete them from Cura, it should be synced back to your online account. Another possibility is to login to the marketplace online and remove it there.

    Not possible, due to the this issue,

    i havent been logged in in weeks. Cura restored them and they're default profiles. I checked the online marketplace after logging in, can't even find them. These are Cura default installed profiles

    Strange, I have never seen such profiles in my Cura installations, so I don't think they are really default ones.

     

    Check if they are available in your configuration folder as well. You have to check the subfolders there. Default profile files are in the application folder itself, custom ones or user installed ones are in the configuration folder.

    Not so strange, because you use 2.85mm filament printers, and OP uses 1.75mm filament printers. All those materials are only shown for 1.75mm filament printers.

    Doing things in the configuration folder (appdata) will not change the materials that ship with Cura. I guess at some point you removed materials from the Cura 4.10 program files. These are all restored when you install a new version (or reinstall the same version).

     

    The Start Optimiser plugin in the Marketplace has an option to remove all the preset materials except the "Generic" ones. Doing that should survive a reinstall of the application.

    I did remove them that way, as at the time (until now) that was the only way i knew of removing them. I found the setting, used it, plugin said it removed 185 profiles from loading and sure enough only my custom created ones are loaded again. Just the way i like it. Thanks!

     

    Followup question to that end. This is what it currently looks like in the \materials folder

    Now i checked them out with notepad and they're xml files. As an experiment i tried editing the filename of such a custom one to the actual <label> but if i do that the profile is no longer loaded. Any reason for that? Am i missing something? Purely for easy recognition i'd love the filename to be the same.
