Cura 15.06 - Saving Print Settings

Recommended Posts

I am new Cura and Ultimaker. I wanted to save my print settings along with my g-code but I am not sure how? Can someone explain the steps to export my print settings? I have read that the setting are attached to the g-code at the end, but I do not see all the setting, such as temperature, infill and speeds.

The settings are compressed and not human readable at the last 2 lines of the gcode file (at least in the older cura from a few weeks ago - this latest Cura I'm not sure). In Cura you can then do "file" "load profile from gcode..." and it loads all the settings into cura and then you can look through them all in the gui or you can do "save profile.." to put them in a human readable ini file.

The Cura that came out 2 days ago is missing tons of features like this. I decided not to use it for another month or so. Hopefully by then it will be able to do profile loading/saving.

I heared that they only want to release new features in 3month cycles ... but it I got the feeling they didn't really decide yet ... a roadmap would be nice.


Working on a roadmap. There will be one. You're right about the not fully being decided one way or another.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
