Configuration errors - custom materials

Hi - 

 

Losing my mind here.  Referring to the image attached.

Cura 'has decided' that my materials are no longer supported.  All of these were created by duplicating generic materials and then editing the settings.  I went nuclear as suggested by another post in the forum and deleted the entire config folder.  

 

I then reinstalled CURA 5.3.1 and then recreated two simpler PLA materials, but I keep getting the error as per the screen grab.  I know I can override the error but it does not make this any less annoying.  Is anybody else experiencing this? 

 

@Smithy ?? 

 

Regards,

Friedl.

    What's your material type of your added material?

    Check that link, maybe it helps

    If not, I assume that there is a bug in your Cura version.

    Hi Smithy - 

     

    I have been using Fillamentum en Fiberlogy for years now.  For some reason now all of a sudden it is presenting this issue.

     

    I recall when I first made custom materials this error presented when the material type was not selected.    In this case, the procedure I followed in an attempt to fix this was;

     

    1. Deleted custom config folder and restart CURA
    2. Select Generic PLA material and click on create new
    3. Adjust name, color and print temp settings and leave type (PLA in this case) in tact.

     

    When printing, I select the material for each extruder.  Upon printing this error pops up and give me the option to override which I then do.

     

    I will redo everything and again and post my findings.

     

    Thanks!

    I think I found my mistake....  You should select the Generic version of the material and then click on DUPLICATE...   Which then begs the questions.... what is the BIG BRIGHT SHINY "Create New" button for?  🤷‍♂️

    The printer knows the material from its GUID number, so duplicate is the right way, because you want to use a generic filament (a brand which is unknown for the UM printer) and set some settings, specific for this filament. 

     

    I never tried it, but I guess when you use Create New, then you also get a new/unkown GUID number for the filament. 

     

    But there were a lot of changes since I wrote the post. i.e. you can now also transfer profiles from Cura to the printer, so maybe also a new filament would work now in some cases. But I never tried it, so I have no experiences. I read some complains in the past, the the transfer is sometimes working, sometimes not.  Maybe it is fixed already, but I don't know. I don't use profiles at all, I just use the default generic PLA for nearly all my PLA filaments (also Filamentum)

    Yup. If you press "create new" it generates a new GUID. If you duplicate a material it will keep the GUID of the original material
