Using Cura 2.7 with same settings for different users and different PCs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using Cura 2.7 with same settings for different users and different PCs

I've an Ultimaker 3 Extended connected with several PCs and several user profiles within the same Windows 10 graphic workastation.

My aim is to manage in a single place (eg. master workstation user) the different Cura settings (especially the materials profiles, with related costs) and then access - or copy - the same settings to all the users and PCs.

I've seen an EXPORT button in Preferences | Materials, but it only exports ONE material/filament at a time... so it's impossible to use it for several configured filaments.

How could I replicate these settings and keep in sync?

Do I need to manually copy some config files to the different machines? Where are they located? (I see the C:\users\username\AppData\local\cura\2.7\... folder structure, but... many files here...)

Many thanks in advance!

The AppData/local/cura/2.7 is indeed the place where cura stores all user created profiles.

    • "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.
