Duplicate a machine? (Alternate extruder settings.)

Is there a way to duplicate a machine? 

 

I've been experimenting with different nozzle widths lately, and my plan was to define a second machine with the alternate nozzle; that way as I evolve the settings for Machine_Nozzle10, they don't muck up the good settings I've developed for Machine_Nozzle4.

 

However, I can't figure out how to easily duplicate Machine_Nozzle4.

 

(Or is there a more Cura-friendly way to approach this?)

    (I realize this is a necro, but this posting comes up at top for my google search, so I'm adding my answer.)

    A way that seems to be quite easy is to save an empty project (File->Save) which will include the printer settings.

    Then open (again, via File->Open) that project, and you'll be asked if you want to update or create a new profile and printer.

    Create new and change the settings there.

     

    I've done this just now with the new Cura 4.1 , but older versions should be able to do that as well, since there is a comment from 2018 on GitHub:
    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/3568

     

    [edit] Apparently not everything is copied? I had to set the manual change in the _settings.inst.cfg again.
    (I've disabled temp control of the nozzle, because I prefer to control that via Octoprint.)

      • 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
