Can i use cura on my prusa i3?

Recommended Posts


Since the last version doesn't have the Prusa profile, and as you are just starting with 3D printer, I recommend you to download a previous version (The last I have used is version 15.02.1).

The other way is to create a profile for your printer on the new Cura, looking at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.06.01\resources\settings" (or equivalent on another OS)

Hi Stef,

Regarding to your message, you just need to move the profile file to the directory I said before.

You should also probably take a look on RepRap wiki and forums to learn more about 3D printing, or even here at Ultimaker forum you will be able to find a lot of useful information to start printing.

      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.
