Anycubic Kobra Default Profiles Missing?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Anycubic Kobra Default Profiles Missing?

Are the default resolution profiles such as Extra Fine, Fine, Normal etc. a global feature in Cura? I added my Anycubic Kobra in Cura 5.2.1 using the non-networked listing for the printer, but the only three default profiles are "Suggested Parameters for" PLA, ABS, and TPU. Some features in those profiles like Z-seam position are greyed out. See screenshot.


I also have an Anycubic Vyper in 5.2.1 and the defaults are Extra Fine, Fine, Normal, Draft, Extra Fast and so on. I wasn't sure what was going on so I did a clean 5.2.1 install and got the same results. Am I missing something? I'm flummoxed. I often use the Vyper defaults to create custom profiles and would like to have the same setup for the Kobra. Thanks!

    Hey @Rustaxis,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    Since Cura is open source, non-Ultimaker printers are added by community members.
    You can find the contribution for the Anycubic Kobra here.  You can reach out to the user and ask for more default profiles.
    The contribution for the Anycubic Vyper has been made by another community member who referred to the default quality settings instead so that is why there are more profiles there.

    You can "hack" the Kobra definition files to get the same default settings as the Anycubic.
    BUT you will be deviating from the suggested settings by the manufacturer and you might have to redo this trick every time you update to a new version of Cura.

    If you find the file anycubic_kobra.def.json you can remove the two lines that say:
    "has_machine_quality": true,
    "quality_definition": "anycubic_kobra",


    If you restart Cura you will see the same profiles as you see for the Vyper. 

    Since this is a "hack" I suggest you first back-up your Cura before trying it in case something goes wrong. 
    You can read more about back-ups here.

    Good luck! 💪

      • 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
