Unable to delete PLA+ material

Posted · Unable to delete PLA+ material

Before I knew about the PLA/PLA+ limitation I inadvertently created a bunch of materials with Material Type set to PLA+

 

Now I cannot delete them, regardless of whether they are 'active' or not.

I wish to just delete the .material XML file or edit it directly, however, I cannot find them in either ~/.config/cura/ or ~/.local/share/cura/

Can someone advise how to get rid of these junk material profiles?

 

Cheers

    They should be in the materials folder.

    It's a bit weird that it doesn't let you delete it though. It should only do that if it considers them to be bundled materials.

    Yeah, it's weird. Definitely not bundled as I recall creating it as a custom material.

     

    The recursive grep is showing it's not finding the display name anywhere in the Cura directories that I know of, which includes the materials subdirectories.

    But can you check if there are any materials in the materials folder? It has to get them from somewhere... All user made profiles end up in those folders, so it has to be there.
