Cura output file format


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura output file format

Hello everyone,

my question is, can you change the output format that Cura saves by default?

I have the Chitu extension to preview my file on the printer display.
However I have to select the format each time I save.


THX in before, live long and prosper

    Not 100% sure, but check the profile file (not in Cura, in the filesystem) of your printer. I think the default output format is configured there.
