Adding machine profile to Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adding machine profile to Cura

Hello, I have just acquired an Optimus P1 printer, but I'm struggling to work out how to add the printer/machine profile to the Cura setup. I have been given a file.def.json, which you add to definitions on a Windows computer, but how do you do that on a Mac? Without that, the machine does not show up on the 'Add a Non-Networked Printer' drop down.

Help much appreciated..
