Edit Cura profile or support material with OctoPi

Recommended Posts


a few weeks ago I bought a Raspberry Pi to control my Ultimaker 2+ by wlan. Now I want to slice with OctoPi, but how do I enable support material?

I wanted to edit the "pla_0.4mm_normal.ini" file with Notepad++, but I don't know in which value I have to change support? Normally there is "None", do I have to write Yes? True? On?

Is there a list with all values that exists?

And why I can't save the profile in Cura (15.04.06) (file > save profile)?) It's disabled.

Thanks for your help!

I think @skdesign wants to do the slicing on his OctoPrint instance. OctoPrint has a plugin which uses the 15.04 version of CuraEngine, which uses the 15.04 profile ini files.

Having said that, as the author of the octoprint plugin I agree with @nallath that you have much more control over the placement and print settings if you use Cura 2.3 (or 2.4 beta) with the OctoPrintPlugin.

    • "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.
