How to import settings into Cura 14.09

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to import settings into Cura 14.09

I just installed Cura 14.09.

As I do not feel the need to setup everything again, I tried the copy-ini-file-procedure... and failed. Cura 14.09 persists on setting up new machines.

So my question (mainly to Daid... ;) ): How do I import the settings from Cura 14.07 into 14.09?

Oh, yes, sorry, due to problems with some installations, I moved the preferences files to:

C:Users[username].cura14.09

Instead of the older:

C:Program Files (x86)Cura_14.07

Ok, I kind of sorted it out. I saw that new 14.09 folder. However I had some troubles getting the settings for two machines. machines.ini contains only one machine. I had to copy the preference.ini file from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_14.07\Cura" to this new folder in order to get it work properly. It's somewhat strange.

Yes, the settings have become a bit of a mess. Just like most other things in the code. Hench the pink unicorn :-)

Where are these files (from version 14.07) located on a Mac osx system?

I've installed Cura 14.09 and can't see a C:users<myname>cura

Clarify?

Not to complain about free SW, but if it's going to keep pestering me to update, it should allow me a way to do it reliably.

Will the runtime stats on the um2 be saved after the update?

 

The runtime stats are never erased. (Unless you do special hacks)

try .cura....

So in my case:

C:\Users\jonw\.cura\14.09

Is there any way to I change that path back? I have several CURA folders for my different machines and versions, this behavior ruins a lot of nice things I use to be able to do. Is that path setting in one of the .py files so I can just edit it back, or is in inside the complied exe?

It's in util/profile.py (something with defaultProfilePath or something like that)
