I"m trying to follow the instructions on https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura.  I know all about git and github,  and I've already created the printer definition, but I can't figure out what file(s) to actually upload.  I'm using Cura 3.2 on a Mac.

    At the very least you need to add the .def.json file. If you also have a build plate model, you should also upload that.

     

    It could be that your machine has variants (eg; switchable nozzles). In that case all variant files also need to be uploaded. Same is when the machine has quality types per material.

    Can you be more specific?  Exactly which files, and where I should put them?  I don't see any .def.json files anywhere in ~/.cura or in ~/Library/Application Support/Cura/3.2/.

    I already defined the printer by using the GUI.  Is there no tool that creates the JSON file automatically?  That seems weird.

    No, there is no such tool currently.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
