Which Printer Settings to Copy Over to JSON File?

Recommended Posts

Hello all I'm new to 3d printing. I've seen that you can add a printer to Cura v 15.06 by adding a JSON file and I found the preset for my MakerFarm i3v at Github. MakerFarm provided settings for my printer/hot end combination to use with Sli3er. They seem to work good but I've been having issues with Sli3er so I'm trying Cura. My question is can I insert all of the settings from the Sli3er file into the JSON file?

Given there are many settings I'd like to have them preset instead of manually entering them every print. Below is code from the two files. First are the settings MakerFarm provided for Sli3er then the Prusa i3 presets in the JSON file are after that.

MakerFarm provided settings for Sli3er:

    • "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.
