Lost filament settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Lost filament settings

I lost my filament settings recently in a hard drive crash/burn.

I was able to recover my project files (stl's and gcode etc.) but not the custom settings I have worked so hard on.

Is there any way to recover and/or restore these? Are they stored in the app directory somewhere?

I'm on Mac.

All help appreciated.

    Cura has a built in backup, but you will have to enable that. You can find it in extensions -> backup

    You can also import profiles via preferences. If you select a g-code there, it will try to extract the settings from it.

    As for storing projects, it's best to store project files (3mf's with extra data). They store much more information than g-codes and STL files.
