On my Mac I've got two versions of Cura installed, in /Applications/Cura250 and /Applications/Cura262.

How can I copy my printer and profile settings from Cura 2.5 to Cura 2.6?

  • $\begingroup$ Ya got me - I upgraded and IIRC there was some option to click to import settings, or maybe they just got imported automatically. DId you check that your setups are not available? $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft Aug 14 '17 at 15:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yep... only shows a default printer in 2.6. I'd be content knowing if I could copy some config files from 2.5 to 2.6. Or maybe this will be a feature in 2.7. $\endgroup$ – Mark Harrison Aug 14 '17 at 18:12

Hope this is all you need.
From the release notes page

Cura 2.6 - June 20, 2017 Local version folders. When installing a new version of Cura, a new local directory will be created to make it easy to access old configuration folders and return to old settings if necessary.

So if you know where your current 2.5 config directory is, you should be all set.

  • $\begingroup$ So... How do you copy the settings? Move the files from one folder to the other? $\endgroup$ – Tom van der Zanden Aug 16 '17 at 5:16
  • $\begingroup$ @TomvanderZanden I wouldn't move the files, but copy them. Once everything works fine and you're happy with the new version, feel free to remove the old settings folder. $\endgroup$ – Kuba hasn't forgotten Monica Aug 16 '17 at 19:09

From the Ultimaker Forum:

  • Launch Cura 2.6 and go to Help -> Show Configuration folder. Now close Cura.
  • These are the configuration files for Cura 2.6. They are in a folder named 2.6.
  • On OSX, the configuration files for Cura 2.5 are one folder up (not in a folder named 2.5). You can copy files from that parent folder into the folder named 2.6, and Cura should update them as needed the next time it is started.
