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)

    • "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.
