Posted · Problem editing curaprofile from draft to standard quality_type

I'm trying to edit old .curaprofile file to update it from draft to standard quality_type but when I import it in cura I get utf-8 error.

I don't understand what is correct way to save the file with Mac OS.


Thanks in advance for helps

    It looks like you possibly

    • change the code page of the file to something different to utf8. This can happen if you use a normal text editor  and then save the file as text file.
    • or add a character ("¤") in your profile. Maybe with copy and past from an other file or html file


    Use instead a coding editor like notepad++, vs code or something similar.

    For the latter one and most possible issue find and delete this wrongly inserted character in the profile. Position 37 should be a good indicator where this character is located in the mentioned file.

      • 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
