Cura - Custom Materials (profiles)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura - Custom Materials (profiles)


I added all my different filament in Cura as different material from different Suppliers/brands... it Works great and With two printcores it's actually important to me.

Anyway... Now I'm replacing my old Laptop With a New computer... I want to export my materials so i can import them on a New computer.

What is the best way to do this?

Exporting one by one is almost as much work as making them all over again on the New computer.

Would it work to; Copy-Paste the entire CURA-folder and reinstall cura to the same folder on the New computer?

    I have taken to exporting my material and print profiles via the configuration tab to create non-installation required backups. That way I can blow out the folder setup that Cura references and still reload (manually) the profiles.

    However, Having the same OS would probably be required unless the data is stored in a form that is transportable (ASCII, etc).

    You can copy the local files found in the help -> local configuration folder. That should work.


    Awesome that worked great! Thanks a million!

    And just FYI if people wonder about the location... In Cura under the tab "HELP" there's a option to open your settings folder. :) (It's Local Harddrive:\Users\Your User\AppData\Local\Cura) for me :)

    Just copied my materials from 2.4 to 2.5Beta all at once, saved me alot of work

    Pro-tip: it is a good idea to keep a backup of that whole configuration folder, in case something goes wrong and eg Cura will no longer start.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
