Importing manufacturer provided profiles with linux on 5.3 beta


Recommended Posts

Posted · Importing manufacturer provided profiles with linux on 5.3 beta

I am trying so hard to jump into this new hobby with enthusiasm, but am struggling to find enjoyment!!

I bought an Anycubic Kobra Neo on sale, and they provided a micro sd card with the recommended settings as a handful of .curaprofile files that Linux does not know how to use. 

I add and customize a generic printer, since Cura seems to have every model from Anycubic BUT the Neo, but when I attempt to click the "import" button for either adding material or profiles nothing happens. I zipped the .curaprofile folders to view the contents and code, but have no clue what they mean or how to use them. If I knew anything about computers I wouldnt have bought a Chromebook....


There have to be some other users out there with Chromebooks having succesful prints- PLEASE HELP ME GET A SOLID START!

    Hey @shechtl,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    Chromebooks are officially not yet supported by Cura. 
    You can read more about the compatible Operating Systems here: 

    We do have a part of the community that has worked together to have the Linux version of Cura run on Chromebooks. 
    You can read more about it here.

      • 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.
