    You will have to add it as a custom printer.  I couldn't even find what firmware it uses.

    In Cura go to Preferences/Configure/Printers/Add a printer / non-networked printer / Custom FFF and on the right side change the name.

    In the next dialog enter the build plate size  120 x 120 x 120

    Shape: Rectangular, 

    Center Origin: NO

    Heated bed: Yes

    heated volume: No

    Keep the firmware at Marlin (it may not be correct but you have to start somewhere).

    Don't worry about the settings on the right side at this point.

    That should get you started.

    Different flavors of firmware take different Gcode commands so you really need to know the exact flavor that the machine runs.  Polaroid seems unwilling to tell anyone what it is.
