Set default directory for .stl files?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Set default directory for .stl files?

I'm running Cura 5.0.0 on Linux. When I open a new STL file the file picker always starts me off in my home directory. Is there a way to change that? I'd like the file picker to start in some other directory (like where I keep all of my STL files) so I don't have to navigate around so much.

    Cura normally stores the last location you opened a 3d model from. However, Cura uses the file dialog provided by the OS, and if that file dialog does not accept the stored last location, then (re)setting that location in cura.cfg will likely not do you any good. So in short: there is no way to change that (other than fixing this slight incompatibility between Cura and your OS)
