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.

|ABS.ini||Ubis 13S||235||Standard (0.1984mm)||Slow 25mm/sec||enabled|
|Ceramic ABS.ini||Ceramic||235||Standard (0.1984mm)||Slow 25mm/sec||enabled|

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.
