Cura 2.1.1 Profile Location

Recommended Posts

I've created several profiles in Cura 2.1.1 and I'm curious where they reside on the file system?

I expected them somewhere in C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04.5\resources but they're not saved in any of the subfolders.

Any help would be appreciated!

And yes, I know I can export the profiles to a specific folder, but that's not what I'm after. Thank you!

Looks like it's in one of the appdata folders which is where programs are supposed to store data. program files folder is for executable code, not configuration code. You need admin right to modify files there. So most programs use the registry or appdata folders. Mine is here - your appdata folder will be different depending on your username:

C:\Users\gr5\AppData\Local\cura

    • "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.
