printer export/import

Hi,

 

in earlier versions it was possible to export and import printer settings in Cura. I cannot find this in 3.1.0. Is this hidden or removed?

It's still possible via the Manage Profiles window. Provided you're talking about slicing settings/profiles?

Thx for your answer! I´m talking about the printer settings (e.g. start gcode, end gcode,...)

I'm not aware of such a feature in Cura 2.x or 3.x releases. Are you referring to Legacy Cura (15.x and earlier)?

Those are print quality settings, not printER (machine) settings. I don't know which settings are in the quality profile export by head, but it could be that start/end G-code is not one of them. Anyways, this feature didn't change between Cura 2.x and 3.x.

My bad.

 

I tried something that appears to work, but not 100% sure it's reliable. I added a machine I didn't have, a Prusa in this case, I then edited the start gcode for that printer and added a word to it. I loaded a model and then saved as project. I then removed the Prusa-printer and restarted Cura. I loaded the project file, the Prusa machine was added and the unique word was present in the start gcode. So maybe a workaround?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
