Is it possible to edit/create .curaprofiles in a text editor?

Recommended Posts

Thanks. Very useful @nallath

I can confirm that I can now modify the profiles!

Howto modify a .curaprofile

 

  • Open the .curaprofile as a zip archive
  • modify the files
  • re-compress the files
  • ONE WAY: a bit convoluted way to do this with no 3rd party software
    • rename the profile to `profile.zip` instead of `profile.curaprofile`
    • extract the files
    • edit them
    • re-compress into a new .zip archive
    • rename to .curaprofile again. 
    • done
  • ANOTHER WAY: simpler, but you need to install the open source and cross platform B1 Free Archiver
    • Open the .curaprofile archive with B1 (no renaming necessary)
    • Double click on the file you wanna edit
    • it will open in your default text editor
    • make you changes and save
    • the program will ask you if you want to save the changes
    • done. (B1 will re-compress the archive in the background)
