Help! 4.9.1 would not start


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help! 4.9.1 would not start

Couple of months since I last fired up my Ender 3 Pro and tried to slice in Cura. But dismayed to get message that something had gone wrong. (Duly sent report 30 mins ago.) Took the 'backup and reset option' but had to specify printer and so assume I've now lost all my settings? Is there some way to recover them please?


The good news is that I am now printing from Cura's output. However I got a message about 4.11.1 which I've downloaded. When I install that will I get offered an opportunity to restore my settings please?

    Hi @terrypin there is unfortunately no option to recover your settings.


    When you install 4.11 you will get a message to delete previous versions, make sure you click on no, so your older Cura versions will not be deleted. 

    To make sure to keep your settings you can go to C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\cura and then the 4.9.1 folder. Make a copy of this folder and rename it. 

    For next time it is easier to make a back up, go to Extensions - Cura Backups - Manage backups. 


    Let me know if it worked for you!

      • 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
