Cura Standalone Configuration

Post by JesterVineo » Wed Feb 18, 2015 3:30 pm

Does anyone have a configuration file for the latest standalone version of Cura (15.01)?

I'm using a Mac, and Repetier-Host does not run under Crossover. I usually print directly from the SD card, so all I really need is a slicer. I tried converting the settings from the Cura engine in Repetier-Host 1.05, but Cura 15.01 is different enough that I'm worried about the inconsistencies. I guess I can start a trial-and-error process, but I was hoping someone has already done the work and can save me the time.

Anyone?

Okay, I converted the settings for the standalone Cura 15.02. I based my settings on the "High Quality (150 um)" settings from v1.0.5 of the Felix Repetier-Host for Windows.

I have attached the ini file with these settings.

I have also attached a screenshot of the "Machine Settings" in Cura since I don't think these are contained in the ini file.

Weird...the screenshot got attached, but not the ini file. Let's try that again.

Okay, attaching the ini file doesn't seem to work, so I'll try to paste it here instead.

I've made a few prints with these settings in Cura 15.02 on my Mac, and I'm happy with the results so far.

Sorry this is a stupid newbie question, but where in Cura do you enter this ini file?
