Trying to modify a .curoprofile file


Recommended Posts

Posted · Trying to modify a .curoprofile file


I am trying to print a Escipson glider and to do this I need to use a custom profile that creates a thin wall for the wing sections. I am using a dynamic flsun qq-s printer. Eclipson have created a couple of curaprofiles for Ender 3 type printers to help with thin wall printing set up. I am using a mac and have unzipped the cura profile supplied by Eciplson and copied over what i think are the relevant new params. I have tried rezipping both in Mac and windows but get this error each time. Any one got any suggestions please ?

Any help gratefully received

    So , I have found my mistake. I was not importing the .curaprofile in the correct place. It needs to imported  from this place:.
    1 /  ..Settings/extruder1/materials/managematerials
    2/ then click on profiles  and import

    Obvious really 😎
