Hi folks, so I have just installed Cura, to replace the Flashforge software that I am finding rather poor in performance.

I installed a profile for the Flashforge Creator 3 Pro from a file on thingiverse, just had to change print bed dimensions...

When I come to managing PLA type out of the PLA menu the software crashes, with the error

 

TypeError: float() argument must be a string or a real number, not 'SettingFunction'


The full listing is below...

    Sounds to me there’s a problem in that profile on thingiverse. But since you forgot to post a link to it, I can’t really tell you what causes the crash.

    I don't even get to a particular profile though! This comes up when I select profile manager and without selecting any profile! Anyway, my printer has more problems with this software atm!

    I will just leave the PLA type as generic for now

    Hey guys, I'm in the same situation as @ollyk2. I also use Cura instead of Flashprint with the "profile" from thingivers and everytime I try to manage my materials I get the same error message like ollyk2. This is the "profile"/instruction by ArteFlux I used to generate gcode in Cura suitable for the Creator 3 printer:

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4574596

    I'm actually not good in programming, but I guess there is a problem within the SettingsDefinitions.py file in line 757.

      File "UM\Settings\SettingDefinition.py", line 757, in <lambda>
        "float": {"from": lambda v: str(round(float(v), 4)) if v is not None else "", "to": toFloatConversion, "validator": Validator},
    TypeError: float() argument must be a string or a real number, not 'SettingFunction'

    Maybe someone can help.

    Thanks!

    Like I said before, the problem is with the "profile"/instructions.
