    not I, sorry I dont use Cura for the Robos. You should be able to export your settings from a previous cura and import into Cura 3?

    Not sure that is true, 2.5-ish Cura changed how to store profile data. I have only played with 2.5, never used 3.0 either. Wasn't thrilled with it in 2.0 or 2.5. Only profile I would have in the version I used was for the C2 which is no help either.

    Sorry, there may be some Cura users here that can chime in.

    I was impressed with the results that I got with MatterControl and since the company that sells the stl files for the r/c airplane I'm making includes Simplify3D optimizations I bought Simplify3D. I printed the same test object to compare... the spinning top.
    The print is great!

    I have been using 3.0.4 successfully, what is your question, maybe I can help?

    I can tell you this much, I did have one change I made because it was printing mid air.
    goto settings, printer, manage printer.
    from the left column select "printer" and over on the right select "machine settings"
    I put this in the "Start Gcode" box and it works great now.

    G21 ;metric values
    G90 ;absolute positioning
    M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode
    G28 ;move X/Y/Z to min endstops
    M565 Z-.97 ;set Z-Offset in mm (may need adjusting for your specific printer)
    G29 ;run auto-level routine
    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length
    G190 S{print_bed_temperature) ;set bed temperature and wait
    G109 S{print_temperature} ;set extruder temperature and wait
    M 117 Printing...

    I am having the same problem. But with S3D works fine. I really need Cura to work on my Robo because the detailed profile I don’t get in simplify. Also, my prints were starting in the front left corner. I will try you tip on the gcode. I hope this time it will print fine and not air.

    Thank you.

    This is the end Gcode.

    G92 Z0 ;set current z position to be new 0

    G91 ;relative positioning

    G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle to release some of the pressure

    G1 Z+0.5 E-5 F9000 ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more

    G90 ;absolute positioning

    M104 S0 ;turn off extruder heat

    M140 S0 ;turn off heated bed

    G1 X10 Y230 ;extend bed out front

    M84 ;disable motors
