Hi all

 

I am changing hard drives over on my main 3dPrinter PC.  I would like to backup the settings so when I installed the software on my new drive, I can then copy of the ini file if that's what its extension name is. From the old to the new, is this possible, can anyone point me in the location of the file?  I will be installing the latest released Ultimaker Cura version.

 

Regards

 

Paul

    You can copy the whole Cura config folder or use the integrated Cura backup functionality to backup your current configuration to the cloud and then restore it from there again.

     

    The configuration folder can be found via Cura help menu, there is the option to open the configuration folder.

    Do I need to copy these folders and files over to the new installed build of Ultimaker software or us the cloud based backup via , extensions> cura backup on the software?

    Whatever you prefer, if you want to copy it without the cloud, copy the whole Cura folder to the new disk.

    Both should do the same.
