Does Cura update detect and keep existing settings?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Does Cura update detect and keep existing settings?

I have a Creality S1 Pro and have set up all my profiles for various materials which I have exported and backed up. But if I upgrade to the new Beta version does it reset my printer and materials to default or does it maintain the current settings and plugins?

    When installing a new version of Cura, Cura makes a copy of the current configuration and updates that copy to work with the new version. So the previous version configuration will be left untouched.


    In previous versions of Cura for Windows, the installer would ask you if you wanted to remove all data from Cura. This would remove the old configuration so you would start with a blank slate. This removing of old data seems to have been removed from the installer.

      • 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
