Adding new machine profiles to cura4.8


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adding new machine profiles to cura4.8

Hello, I have a question.

My daughter received an ENTINA TINA2 from Santa Claus for Christmas, but we are having trouble installing the software.

The software that came with it could not be installed in our environment, so we did some research and found out that the Cura software can be installed depending on the version.

We have found out that the software does not work as it is and that we need a config file, and we have put the json file in the resource folder, but it is not loading properly.

Below is a description of our PC environment.
I don't want to upgrade for some reason.


Mac book pro early 2015
mac os 10.11.6 El capitan
cura ver. 4.8.0


mac book air M1
mac os 12.6.1 Montrey
cura ver. 5.2.1

I was able to load the config file, but when I select it, I get the following message.

The config file was brought from the cura4.10 system folder that came with the 3D printer.


The work is done with reference to the following page.



I don't know what is wrong anymore,.... I guess the next thing to try is to write the json myself.

If you have any solutions or suggestions, I would appreciate it.

    This came up in another thread and the OP there included some Weedo definition files.  The files he posted are different than the files included with Cura.  I'll post them again here.  I don't know that this will work, but it might.


    Copy the definition files into the "...\Ultimaker Cura 5.2.1\share\cura\resources\definitions" folder.

    Copy the extruder files in the "...\Ultimaker Cura 5.2.1\share\cura\resources\extruders" folder.


    If you are using the 4.x version of Cura then the Definitions and Extruder folders are up one layer as there is no "Share" folder in the earlier versions of Cura.


    If your "Entina" definition file inherits the "Weedo Base" definition file and it isn't on the computer then that is the problem.  The "Weedo Base" definition is included in the zip folder.  The "Entina" defintion is not included but the Weefun and Weedo Tina2 definitions are there.  You could install one of them (maybe) and just change the printer name.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
