Transferring print profiles to next version

Posted (edited) · Transferring print profiles to next version

Hi,

I would like to upgrade from 4.11 to 4.12 but there is one structural problem with new Cura versions. There is a lot of complaining about it, but Ultimaker seems to neglect that. What's my problem? How the f* do I transfer dozens of printptrofiles to the next version without several hours of work doing exports (and retyping the profile name for each profile) and imports on my new version and/or the next/new computer?

I currently have a Creality CR6-SE and I'm considering a new printer. (Actually I want to start a 3D print shop.) I really do like the Ultimaker printers, but looking at the troubles I have with each next version of Cura.... and/or a new/additional computer? Well... stone age practices. Really hate this part of Cura. Is there a simple solution??? If not I'm going for a Prusa3D for my next printer.

I asked Mr Google, but there seems to be no smooth solution. (Or didn't I ask the right question???)

Hope someone has a nice solution...

Tom...

    It automatically does that (or well, it should...) . I don't know why it doesn't for you, but maybe I can find something in your log files that indicate what is going wrong.

    One thing to pay attention to is that when installing a new version of Cura, it will ask you if you want to uninstall the previous version(s). If you choose to uninstall the previous version, the uninstaller will ask you if you want to remove the settings of that previous version. If you let the uninstaller remove your settings, there is nothing left for Cura to upgrade to the new version.

     

    DO NOT let the uninstaller remove your settings if you want to use your settings and profiles in the new version!

    READ what the installer is asking you instead of just "clicking through".

      • 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
