Profile maker

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Profile maker

I created a tool to make new profiles. It lets you select from existing profiles and export to XML. Using excel you can then edit the profile and import it to the cura directories so the profiles will be recognized as native. Note that with this tool you can make nozzle diameter + layerheight specific printing profiles. This is not only recommendable, but also helps avoiding the compatibility warnings on UM3 and S5.


Maybe such a tool already exists but I couldn't find exactly what I needed. This tool helps me make new profiles in a very organized way. Also it helps to see relations between printing profiles created by Ultimaker. You can extrapolate these to your own printing filament to match the quality of Ultimakers native settings.


To export a profile from your Cura install, first click open. Then choose a name for the XML that will represent your "profile bundle". Click export. Open the XML to edit your profiles. Next, in the tool, click import and choose your file. Now restart Cura and you should be ready to go.


Currently only supports UM2+, UM2E+, UM3, UM3E and UM S5 but more printers could easily be added manually in the code.

    • Coronavirus: Let's do our part
      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
