Posted (edited) · Third-party (delta) printers with new Cura

Hey guys, thanks for the new version - I was browsing the code before the release and am excited to see the finished product.

How to add 3rd-party printers: Duplicate one of the existing JSON files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.06.01\resources\settings, give it a new name, and update it with the settings for the third-party printer. Then simply launch Cura, and it'll appear in the list of printers to add.

Question: The old Cura had an option to select build area shape (square or circular). Does the new Cura support circular build areas? If so, what would the JSON key and values be for that setting? I don't see any reference to circular/delta-style printers in the sourcecode.
