Polar 3D Printer: I need “Polar Cura Settings.rcp” and “Polar PLA Settings.rcf” files

Posted · Polar 3D Printer: I need “Polar Cura Settings.rcp” and “Polar PLA Settings.rcf” files

I'm trying to use this old 3D Printer from Polar3D.  Direct connect instruction say to use CuraEngine with Repetier-Host Interface but I need to download these 2 files: Polar Cura Settings.rcp” and “Polar PLA Settings.rcf”  from Polar 3D.  The link to polar 3D in the instructions is broke.  Any chance some one in the community may have these files?  Thanks.

    I don't know what to think about this. Here is a clip (this site) showing the printer working.  If a machine tool was doing this I'd call it Monkey Motion.  It's a mish-mash of polar and cartesian coordinates.  I'm curious if a regular gcode would work with that.

    Couple that with no heated bed and I really think you'd do better on Craigslist or Ebay.

    Thanks for the reply Greg.  It is weird yes but it worked.  I've printed several projects on it.  But now that it's no longer supported I need those files so Cura

    can interface with it.

    If you have a Gcode file that worked post it here.  I have a feeling that those "rcp" files just the "initial settings" that might be used by the older versions of Cura.  That image I posted is (I think) 8 years old.

    It is possible to build a setting profile from a gcode and/or with some trial and error in the Machine Settings dialog.
