    I went and installed Cura 4.1. The compiled prints would randomly just pause for more than 20 seconds or sometimes just stop. I then tried load the STL using Robo Cura 2.5. It screwed up the filament feed and a ton of filament was fed out. I reloaded robo Cura 2.5. I then restarted Robo Cura 2.5 and loaded an STL file. The Robo Cura 2.5 now worked.

    Does anybody have any experience with Cura 4.1. Is there something special I must do to eliminate the random stopping. And by stopping I mean that half an hour later it is still stopped.

    I am using windows 10. I got the printer straightened out by going System->Restart. I no longer fed tons of filament when using Cura for Robo 2.5. Cura 4.1 works with the exception that I can not set flow rate, so my prints look like sponges. I contacted Ultimaker and they told me that users make profiles for Cura. Don't know how to do that. I looked at the generated GCODE and it had G0 Fxxxxx which is the feed rate so I do not know why the Robo will not let the feedrate change.

    Ok. Just wanted to verify the OS before walking down the troubleshooting tree.

    Open Cura, then the configuration menu (Preferences -> Configure Cura). Select the Printers in the left panel. Then click on Machine Settings & Extruder 1. Make sure the "Compatible Material" is set to 1.75 mm. Cura defaults to 3.0 which can throw off a lot of other settings. Then click on Profiles in the left panel. If you do not see any "Robo R2" profiles listed in the "Custom Profiles" area, you will need to download the factory profiles from Robo and import them into Cura. Instructions for getting and importing the profiles can be found in the Cura for MAC webpage.

    If I do a search for Cura for MAC it just brings me back here. Do you have a link?

    I feel like a dummy. I found the extruder setting and sure enough it was not 1.75.

    I found that I could just copy Progam Files->Cura for Robo->Resources->Definitions->robo_r2.def.json to the same place in Cura 4.1 and it now had the R2 profile.

    thanks for the help
