What are the default print settings in Cura?


Recommended Posts

Posted · What are the default print settings in Cura?

I've just started out printing on my Ultimaker 2 and I want to fine tune the settings for my prints.

So far I've only been using the default (High, Normal and Low Quality) options in the quickprint menu. Moving over to the Expert settings, I see most of the values are defaulted to certain values and don't change if I change the quickprint option. For comparison with what I have already printed, can someone provide me what the exact settings in the full+advanced parameters are for each of the default options?

EG: What layer height is the quickprint high quality option using?

Also, are there any guides on fine tuning settings on UM2 for best quality prints? I see a lot of threads focused on one or two settings, but is there anything about what each setting does and how I can optimize my prints?

    There are over 500 settings in cura.  There are hundreds of profiles that come with cura.  Each profile has different defaults.  This is a difficult question to answer.


    Maybe narrow down your question?  Like do you want to know how to see the settings?  Do you want the default settings for a particular profile?  Why are you asking?


    Or are you asking about cura 15.X seeing as you have an UMO possibly you use Cura 15?  From 2015?  It's an excellent version that works quite well with the UMO.
