where I find my printer setting (MAC)

Recommended Posts

Everytime Cura gets an update the settings for all my printers are gone.

Not the slicer setting, the settings for the printer.

I got 3 printer profiles for different printers, and these are gone. Only one UM original is left.

Where can I find them? So that I can copy from my Time Machine Backup this settings. I don't want to make new printers and make new settings for those.

I see some machine profiles if you right click on the cura app (MAC) and choose show package contents. Also I see that you can save the profiles from the main menu bar. Best to have a backup copy of those saved. So at worst you could just restore cura from Time Machine, open it up and save your profiles.


Ya I guess the profiles save option is probably for slicing and not for the machines.

[home]/Library/Application Support/Cura/


nothing there, no Cura folder.

in the hidden folder: ~/.Cura are all the versions up to 14.06-RC6 although I have almost every release after that.

How to reorganize this? Should I delete folders? Move them?

Plug ins Folder is in the hidden folder as well.

'Load profile from gcode' always returns with the error: 'No profile found, only works with versions by Cura 12.07 or newer'.
