Cura 2 & Prusa i3 with heating bed

Recommended Posts


I have a Prusa i3 Hephestos with a heating plate that works perfectly with Cura 15.04. I found how to add the heating bed in printer parameters.

In Cura 2.1.2, I didn't found where I can add this setting.

How can I do this ?

Its best to make a copy of the file, rename it, give it a new "id" and "name", perhaps even "manufacturer". Then make you mods and copy it back into the machines folder.

When you restart Cura, you'll see it in the "Add Printer" dialog.

Then when you download a Cura software update, you don't loose your changes.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
