Suggested Settings - Printrbot Cura Profile Directory

Different materials require different print settings; temperature, speed, cooling, etc.  Loading a pre-configured profile (aka "config") into Cura is a great way to set yourself up for successful prints with your Printrbot.  Download the desired profile from the table below for the type of filament that you are working with.  If you are just getting started with 3D printing, PLA is recommended for higher success rates.

Loading a Configuration Profile
Once the ini file has been unzipped and downloaded onto your computer, open Cura and go to File/Open Profile.  Select the ini file that you have downloaded for your Printrbot, and click "Open".  
Settings under the Basic, Advanced, and Start/End-GCode tabs will adjust after loading this profile.  Your "Machine Settings" will not be changed/affected.

    I was able to load the .ini file in Cura 15.04.  If you are using Cura 3, it may only accept ".curaprofile" format of files.

    I think Ely meant the link doesn't work. It doesn't work for me. Try the other one: SlowSteady1.ini

    I'm sorry guys, I have checked these links on more than one computer and am not having any trouble downloading the files.  If you have a screen shot of the failure, I can look into it some more.  thanks!
