New Beta 5.1 Cura

When downloading the new Beta 5.1 version of Cura, how can I stop it from downloading old profiles, at the exclusion of all the new inbuilt profile settings.  I deleted and tried again but the same result.  No new profiles.  Thanks Stephen.

    I don't understand what you are trying to say.


    If you want to start with a blank slate, go to Help -> Show configuration folder. Close Cura, and remove all the files from the configuration folder, but leave the (now empty) folder itself in place. If you remove the entire folder, Cura will search for a configuration folder of a previous version and copy it over. If you leave the folder itself empty, Cura will start afresh.


    PS: The non-beta version of Cura 5.1 is out.

    Thank you so much for your reply.  I am still having similar issues.  Probably simply from a lack of knowledge of how updates work.  I have just downloaded Cura 5.5 but are you able to tell me how I can restore the default print profiles?  There is only one default profile showing, (ie Fast .2mm) along with about 10 of my own profiles.  I have read lots of forums but still unsuccessful in recovering all the default settings.  Many thanks in anticipation.  Stephen.

    Open Cura's configuration directory (in Cura, go to Help > Show Configuration Folder) and close Cura.


    Go into the quality and quality_changes folders and delete all the files in them. This should wipe of all your custom profiles and restore the stock ones.


    I don't know if that will restore all the stock ones by itself - if it doesn't, try removing then re-adding your printer in Cura.

      • 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
