Custom machine profile as a package?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom machine profile as a package?

Hello Everyone,


I’m new to the forums, so I apologize in advance for my level of familiarity with Cura (which is really basic), but I’m here to learn!


I have been using Cura from the Lulzbot fork for a long time, but the more I use it and the more I modify the machines to use custom firmware, the more I find myself needing a new slicer. I have tried using Simplify 3D and Prusaslicer, but I’m so much more familiar with Cura and makes the most sense to me right now.


As I work with the latest version of Ulitmaker Cura, I see there are two Lulzbot printers in the manufactures section, however I wanted to see if it was possible to make an installation package (sorry I don’t know the right terminology) for a custom printer. Something where the parameters and machine STL can be unpacked and be in Cura. Next I wanted to export some of the material profiles from the Lulzbot Cura (many I have optimized for my materials) and import them into the latest version. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated! If there is a tutorial somewhere that would be even better.


Thank you very much
