@Terry DownesHi Martin, Should I be able to download and load this profile file into my Cura software and utilise? I have tried changing the extension to a zip and decompressing which gives me 2 files but these do not seem to be recognised within the Cura profile import dialogue box.
1. full downloaded version of cura. not necessarily a cut-down version bundled with a printer.
2. you must set up a custom printer first. you will be very lucky if cura lets you install a custom profile for any existing printer, or for any printer known to cura. there must be a way round this, but i haven't been able to find how.
but it's not difficult to set up a custom printer, and copy the machine settings from the printer which you do have.
it's all in the old codgers video last night, now online.
you don't need to zip it or split it into different files? i don't understand why folks keep trying to make things difficult. the file has the extension .curaprofile and it will import directly. but only into custom printer. and probably only into a full version of cura.
you can install a new full version alongside an old bundled version and still use either.
in addition to the video i covered it in a post with Phil G a few weeks ago.
