How to migrate resource files from Windows to Linux Cura?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to migrate resource files from Windows to Linux Cura?

I'm migrating Cura from Windows to Linux version.

I've some custom resource files to copy to Linux Cura:

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\meshes\some_custom_printer.stl

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\definitions\some_custom_printer.def.json

\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\extruders\some_custom_exdruter.def.json

... and so on.

Therefore the corresponding directories on Linux aren't accessible as they are temporarily created at runtime.

How do I add the files to Linux Cura?

I'm up against the same issue with 3.6...  Trying to import my Bibo Touch .def files.  Can't figure out how to do that.  Did you find a way?

Oh! Sorry, I missed this topic.

 

On linux Cura has 2 locations where the files are placed

So if you want them for 3.6, the config files need to be in ~/.local/share/cura/3.6/

The cura.cfg (preferences) and the plugin.json need to be located in ~/.config/cura/3.6

    • "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.
