Sometimes cura adds a .0 to the temperature, sometimes not

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Sometimes cura adds a .0 to the temperature, sometimes not

It is hard for me to reproduce. After going to Cura 5.3.1, i started having a problem, an error when printing with Klipper. On ALL my printers (CR10 S pro, Ender 3 S1 pro)

It stopped printing before it had really started.


I found the error. In my printer start sequence I have added following line:


BED_MESH_PROFILE LOAD=default{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}

This used to translate in the gcode to:


as I have a Mesh profile called default62, it would load and use it and it would work fine.
Now i checked the gcode and it reads now: BED_MESH_PROFILE LOAD=default62.0

And that one does not exist.

So what I did is I created new profiles with the .0 at the end. default62.0 for PLA, default70.0 for PETG etc..
it worked for a day or two.. suddenly the same error:

I checked the gcode again.. and now it was back to default62 instead of default62.0 (in the meantime I had erased the profiles without the .0).

It seems that depending what printing profile i am using, it translates {material_bed_temperature_layer_0} to 62 or 62.0


As a momentary workaround i have now saved both mesh profiles, default62 and default62.0, but it is annoying not to know when it changes the output. (its probably a difference between float() and int() somewhere.


I had suspected that the printing profiles I had created in earlier versions of cura keep the 62, and that newly created profiles in cura 5.3.1 add the trailing .0


But it seems that i am wrong: i have just created a new profile, and it has NOT the trailing .0

Please help if someone knows what is going on.


YES I know i should write a completely different startup in a klipper macro, but as fast solution this has worked fine and was working for more than 6 months now. I can live with the doubled mesh profiles, but it would be a lot easier and give me a better feeling to know when it does one thing, and when the other.

        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
