Cura 2.1.1 (beta) Custom size

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have a printrer: Machine settings: Prusa I3 by "Irobri": x=364mm y=310mm z=340mm

How do I add a new printer "Prusa I3 " with a custom size?

With the program "Cura 15.04.5" can I change the size, but with "Cura 2.1.1 (beta)" I can't. Do you can add this features?

Or how to set it?

Thz

Ah, I've done this. I have a JG Aurora A3 that's 180x180x180.

You have to create a new json profile based off the closest matching one. I used prusa_i3.json, but find one that close to your printer.

These json profiles are located in:

 

C:\Program Files\Cura 2.1\resources\machines

 

or

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura 2.1\resources\machines

 

depending on if you installed the 32bit or 64bit version of Cura 2.1

Copy the json profile out to your desktop, rename it. Make the changes to at least these lines:

 

"id": "yourid","version": 1, "name": "Printer Name","manufacturer": "Printer Manufacturer","machine_width": { "default": 364 },"machine_height": { "default": 310 },"machine_depth": { "default": 340 },

 

And then copy it back it. You must be an Admin on your PC to do this as those folders are protected - at least on Windows 10 (Maybe 7 & 8)

Restart Cura 2.1.1 and then you can choose it in the Printer / Add Printer dropdown.

I'm getting good at this, so let me know if you have any problems.
