Adding Sunlu S8 to cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Adding Sunlu S8 to cura

I have a Sunlu S8. I have downloaded the file curaprofileforS8.curaprofile, which Sunlu says is the configuration file for Cura. How do I get Cura to load it? I have put it in several folders, but Cura still does not list it as a printer when I try to select printers.

    Perhaps you should ask Sunlu for an answer? They are giving you (and Cura) incomplete information, by only giving you a .curaprofile. All I can give you as an answer is that they want you to add a "Custom FFF Printer", enter the right dimensions, and then in the Profiles pane of the preferences import the .curaprofile (with the "Import" button). Where to get the dimensions for the Custom FFF Printer, only Sunlu knows.
