Posted · How can I change the default or edit the default printer profile

Hi, 

I want to edit and save changes to the default printing profile of my printer how can I do this? By edit I mean like edit and save the change like on your personnal profile because I add a pluggin to cura to change my printing profile function of the material used, but this pluggin only work on default profile settings. 

 

Pls help.

    The default profiles are "read only". You cannot change them from within Cura. You can change them by editing specific files, but I recommend that you don't go that route. Those changes would be overwritten if you ever update Cura.

    Perhaps if you elaborate on that, and say what you are trying to achieve, we can help you solve your problem in a better way than editing the default profiles. What plugin did you add, and why do you think it only works on default profile settings?

    Hi, 

    I have added the extension "Materials Settings " found on the ultimaker extension market. The description of this extension said something like this extension can't over-writte personal printer profile. I have already edited the default files in the quality folder but a more viable solution will be pleased.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
