It seems as if my default profiles have disappeared.  I only have 1.  Is there anywhere to Download default profiles for nozzles and layer height (fine, medium etc).

 

I used to be able to set it and forget it.  I do not have time to figure all the settings out.  I just want the ones I used that were default for each nozzle.

    Is it a dual extrusion machine? If so; the choices you make for the second extruder matter for what is visible. You could try disabling the second extruder.

    Thanks.  that was not it.  This is all I can see.

    Actually I do not use any plug ins.  I have been trying to locate them manually, I am on a MAC if that matters.  Most current version of Cura, however this has been probably happening for a few updates.

    Is there a place to download standard ones for each nozzle type then by Fine, Standard and Quick etc?

    Depending on what type of printer you added to Cura (you never said what printer you have), it could be that Cura only has specific qualities for specific materials and nozzle sizes.

     

    There are two different types of printer definitions in Cura. A printer definition can either say "I use the default qualities for all materials and nozzle sizes", or "I have specific quality profiles per material and nozzle size". It seems like you have the latter. If you want the former, then instead of picking your printer-type from the list of printers to add to Cura, pick the "Custom FFF Printer". Then you always have all default quality profiles, regardless of what material and nozzle size you chose. But you would have to tune all settings to your printer (for all combinations of materials and nozzle sizes).

     

    Realistically, keep what you have and just change the layer height setting if you want a different print quality.

    Hi gobluejd,

     

    I ran into the same issue on an UM S5 with a market place material profile (ASA Extrafill).

    The quality settings of the material limit the printing profile to "fine - 1.0 mm" (I guess that is, what fieldOfView just wrote).

     

    My solution was to copy the fine profile into a user profile and then adapt to my desired settings.

     

    Cheers

    This what it.  It was set to generic PLA.  Once I chose Ultimaker PLA, I got the settings!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
