I have a number of products that were printed using Cura 14.07.  Thinking I might want to print some of these again (breakage, slight modifications, etc.), I have saved the .ini profile files (with descriptive titles) along with the original STL drawings.

 

I'm now using Cura 3.2.1, which does not seem to recognize .ini files.  For now, I'm retaining V. 14.07  in case I want to modify/redo any of those old products.  Saving just the g-code doesn't seem a viable option since I can't even read nozzle size when I load a g-code file into my Cura 3.2.1. 

 

Any other option for old, pre-.3MF projects?

    It should still be possible to load the *.ini file as a profile using the "Import" function on the Profiles pane of the preferences. Remember though that Cura 14.07 is around 9 years old, so it is not so strange that support for it is fairly non-existent by now, and I don't think anyone has tested that import function with such old files for a good while now.

    I was not able to make that work, probably for the reasons you stated.  In the meantime, I've figured out that 14.07 is so simple I can jot down the settings for a particular .ini file on a sticky note and easily re-copy them into the current version.

     

    Problem solved, as long as I hold on to my 14.07 version.

        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.
