1:   Is it possible to make Cura custom profiles available to other users on a network by default  (without export import).

 

2: When I make a custom profile on a networked computer it has gone when I next log in  why?

    This is a feature we're working on. Currently it's a bit tricky to share profiles between cura instances, which we hope to solve.

     

    As for the disapearing profiles, I can't really say why. Could you share your log files?

    I am also looking for a solution to this. I will probably just make custom profiles and import them by hand to the other computers. But a solution via dropbox or easier even per network share would be awesome. Especially since Ultimaker is geared towards businesses and this is probably a useacase that comes up often, I guess. At least in our company it is a problem at the moment. Also a long time in the making: ?

    You could the new Backups plugin in Cura 3.4. It's not focused on sharing, but it works (login with the same account on multiple machines). As @nallath indicates, we are working on actual sharing behaviors as well.

    Has this been released? If so, which version? I'm excited to use it!

     

    I have 4.5.0 and cannot find a way to share my custom printer with my team, nor are there plugins for broad search terms. If it has been released, please share it here! ...because this is still on the first page of Google search.

    You can share cloud-connected Ultimaker printers in teams via https://mycloud.ultimaker.com. Settings can only be shared via the backups tool at this moment, but we have plans to make this easier. Don't know any timelines on that yet though.

    Is there an update on sharing custom profiles with other people? I want to share some profiles with people in my organisation but cannot seem to find a way to do so.

    We haven't added any new features for this. You can export & import custom profiles though.

    Preferences->Configure cura-> profiles -> select profile -> export

    The same menu that has the export also has an import button. You can do the same for custom materials.
     

    Alternatively, you can also save a project, which should also work (so if someone else opens the project, the profile gets added)
