How to add a custom printer profile with custom layer heights and material compatibillity?

Posted · How to add a custom printer profile with custom layer heights and material compatibillity?

Hi, i am trying to add a custom printer to cura´ s config by adding and modifying the files in the recourses folder.

 

I want a machine definition which has printsettings for profiles: 0.025mm ,0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 mm layerheights. Also I need to have nosslesizes 0.05, 0.06, 0.067, 0.07 and 0.08.

 

I started by modifying a copy of the tronxy D1 definition and moved from there to the tronxy_x (base) profile and on to the FDMprinter def. Then I added a new material based on the generic abs profile, added a dedicated extruder and finally set up variants for nosslesizes and quality. But I can not figure out where I set the layer heights for the profiles...

    I think one can define values for all available settings in the quality files.

    An example with layer height:  .../resources/quality/fast.inst.cfg
