Cura "basic" settings in the advanced mode


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura "basic" settings in the advanced mode


OK.. this might be a simple question for Cura specialists but...

I'm wondering how would I be able to see how the Cura basic settings look as "advanced settings".

Lets say I'm in the medium quality mode and want those as my base to start experimenting with my own settings. When I then change to the advanced mode the print time and length of the material changes.. so looks like when changing to advanced settings the 3 basic settings are not kept as a base and these settings stay as whatever somebody left them last time. Is there a good list somewhere that would show me the 3 basic settings parameters translated to the advanced tables?

    Use the "Load profile from Gcode" option found under the File menu and select a Gcode file that you have created using the basic settings. This will load in all the settings used to create that file.

    Right... this is what I've been wondering. My "Load profile from Gcode" stays greyed out whatever I do. I seem not to be able to select it. I've also loaded the Gcode back to the build plate but still nothing.

    Am I just thick?
