CURA start-up "config file" ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA start-up "config file" ?

Hi all,


Can anyone tell me where CURA 4.xx recalls its startup settings from? I'm looking in particular from where it determines which profile to load on startup.

I've looked in the usual places - the install Directory and as well in appdata/local/....../Cura but couldn't find anything resembling a .cfg or .ini file & have drawn a blank.

    Thanks Burtoogle. I'm on Win10.  I've looked in appdata/local/...../cura but didn't find anything apart from cache files. To check it wasn't one of those I changed and saved my curaprofile (from within Cura) and none of the cache files timestamps changed.


    Hmmm... wonder if it's a registry setting...

    Look in %APPDATA%\cura (which expands to ...\appdata\roaming\cura) instead of the local appdata. This folder is also neatly accessible via Help -> Show configuration folder.


    Cura does not use registry settings.
