Print setting profile sharing?

Would it make sense to collaborate on profiles for various prints? I know that each print is different and the profiles may need to be custom tailored, but general settings for "high quality exterior" "very quick turn-around" ect... would be a nice springboard to start from.

    I believe there has been one or two threads on this topic already (one fairly recently if memory serves) but none of them really took off. I think the issue is like you say, every print is different. And not only the actual objects being printed but also expectations, plastic used (and colour), ambient temperature (I've seen problems caused both by high and low ambient temps here) all play a part.

    I do get what you mean though and I don't think it would be unreasonable to get a few basic profiles down to "close enough" status for 95% of all users. I guess that's what the default settings in cura try to do but personally I stopped using them after the first day.

    Yeah I have thought about posting the same suggestion. It would be very helpful if print settings were suggested when uploading models to sites like thingiverse etc... even as a basic guide.

    In Ultigcode things like temperature are set by the machine, so the profiles would just be print speed, etc...

    That might make it more, or less difficult to share profiles. Depends on how you look at it.
