Config Issue Moving to Cura 5.0


Recommended Posts

Posted · Config Issue Moving to Cura 5.0

I am trying to move the Hydra Research Plugin into Cura 5 and running into a confusing configuration error. 


I have 3 printers that the plugin installs configurations for. 2 of the 3 are working fine, but when I load the 3rd printer I get the error: 

cura.Machines.MaterialNode.preferredQuality [53]: Could not find preferred quality type normal for material hr_fillamentum_pla_extrafill_hydra_research_nautilus_X_400 and variant hrn_X_400, falling back to empty_quality.


It should be looking for a material container "hr_fillamentum_pla_extrafill" but for some reason the definition (hydra_research_nautilus) and variant (X_400) are getting tacked on the end. I looked in the MaterialNode script but and tried to trace back the history of the container_id to see where that happened but I'm getting stuck. Since the other two printers are working, I assume there's a typo in the config somewhere. Which files should I be looking in?


Presumably this is a question for @ahoeben or @nallath, y'all (the rest of the cura and extended team) are amazing and much appreciated for your hard work and continued patience with all of us!

    Intuitively I would say there's something different about the 3rd printer definition. Hard to tell what is happening without the code.

        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.
