Cura settings for Prusa i3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura settings for Prusa i3

Looking for settings for Prusa i3. Not sure how to set it as I saw some topic that GCode has to be changed...

Maybe someone is using Prusa i3 with Cura...

Thanks in advance.

    I've been using successfully Cura for my Prusa i3 8'' with magma hot end (i can use ABS only with the hot end right now)

    Here are my settings:

    Dump it into any .ini file and load it with cura (V13.06.4)
