Changing Cura Icon in MacOS


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Changing Cura Icon in MacOS



I would love to change the Cura icon so it will match the rounded shaped icons in MacOS Big Sur.

Tried to change the icon but it always changes back to the original icon. I even tried to replace the 'icon.icns' file inside Contents > Resources - it still changes to the original one.


Is that even possible?

    Yes, it is.

    In order to make cura icon not changing you need to go to /Applications/Ultimaker Cura.app/Contents/Resources/resources/images and substitute the cura-icon.png and cura-icon-32.png files with the png files of the icon you want. Make sure to give the new icon files the same name as the ones before.
