Network location for profiles

Posted · Network location for profiles

I have been digging around looking to see if Cura has a configuration option to specify where profiles are saved and cannot find anything.  I run Cura on one of three different computers depending on just how lazy I am.  One is a Windows 10 Pro machine, and two others are Ubuntu Linux machines.  It's a rpita trying to keep it all up to date on the three computers, so it would be GREAT if there was a directory specification or something that would allow me to store all of this on my NAS for use by all computers.   Things like filament profiles, printer profiles (including start and end gcodes), print settings, plugin settings . . . all of it.  Is there currently any way to accomplish this?  I am assuming that this doesn't exist,  but personally I think it would be a good upgrade for a (near) future release.

    You can import/export to a shared directory as long as the OS can see it, I use a linux file server for storage with a samba share for this purpose. The only settings that seem to lack an import/export are the machine settings.

    Thanks for the reply.  I know about the import/export option, but even that is still a pita, and still incomplete as the machine profiles are not included.  Just make one small tweak to a a profile and then you would have export it, then go to each of the other computers and import it.   That is, of course, if you remember to do it.  It would just be great just to have one place to store them and all instances of Cura have access to them.
