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!!!!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
