What does Cura account sync do?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · What does Cura account sync do?

I few week ago I installed Cura on one Windows PC and set up my printer and created some custom profiles. Today I installed Cura on a different Windows PC, and hoped to sync across my machine and custom profiles though the mysterious Cura account sync. I'm signed in to my Cura account on both PCs, and have clicked on my user icon in the top right of Cura, then clicked 'Check for account updates'. It then says 'Account synced'. I did this on my first PC with the custom profiles, then did it on the second PC, but I didn't see my custom profiles appear.


Have I misunderstood how this sync function works? If not, why isn't it working.

    The "Check for account updates" button synchronizes Marketplace plugins and materials that were either added to Cura while signed-in, or those added via marketplace.ultimaker.com.


    However, you can achieve the desired effect of synchronizing all Cura settings (including custom profiles) by using the "Cura Backups" plugin, available in the "extensions" menu. Simply create a backup on one machine, and then restore it on another. This will copy over all the settings.
