Save/Load Full Settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Save/Load Full Settings

Is there a way to save the print settings I had for specific model?

The reason I ask if I've been playing around with the "Tweak at Z" plugin and I want all those layer specific settings to be saved, somewhere, so I can quickly reproduce that same print later on.

I was planning on using this plugin to ensure my bridges turn out perfectly for a print, but I don't wanna have to manually set these up every time I want to tweak/reproduce a given model.

A more generic option might be to just have a way to save/load all the settings into a "ini" file. Then I can have a default.ini for each filament type I own, plus specific ones for different models/filament combos. I could then go back to those and tweak them to make em perfect at a later date, or just print another exact copy.

    When you save a gcode file it embeds the settings profile in the end of the gcode file. So you can 'Load Profile from gcode' to get back the settings used for a specific print. I'm not sure if it stores the plugin settings or not.

    To explain it more a bit:

    in the end.gcode in Cura, in default there's a line like this: ;{profile_string}

    this {profile_string} is what saves the currently used profile to the g-code for you to be able to import later on.

    If you have removed this line, you have to add it back manually.

    Oh, very nice. It does load up the Plugin settings as well. I was able to get all the settings back from the gcode I created for a simple bridge testing object.

    This is awesome, now I can reproduce things much easier.


    P.S. Loving my UM2 so far, already printed a ton of stuff, as well as the Low Friction Spool Holder.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-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.
