Where are CURA metadata names and default values stored?

Where is the CURA default metadata stored? I have not been able to find a text or zip formatted configuration file.

 

CURA 3.2.1 has about 300 settings, most of which we users do not set as visible. I assume these are set at some default value, and that some are active while others are not for slicing. While Slic3r saves every metadata name and value in the saved ini files, Cura only saves “quality_type = draft” plus the metadata names and values of user changes.

 

I’d like to review the entire list and defaults to experiment on fine tuning my builds. Currently I go to the profile manager, enable a few, and experiment with those. Try to reset them back to defaults and try another set. Very tedious.

See fdmprinter.def.json in resources/definitions inside your application folder. This has all the descriptions of settings, including default values.
