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)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
