    Hey everyone, Im trying to upgrade Cura, still using Cura 2.5.0 as is the only one I can get to work.

    I can't add my Robo C2 as its not on the profiles to add a printer it just shows profile for Robo3D R1 (See Image) and I can't add a custom printer as I can only load a FFF Custom printer. (See Image) and to my knowledge Robo C2 is a Custom FDM Printer:

    Cant Configure as the settings vary a lot.
    Settings on 4.6.1 :

    Settings on 2.5.0 :

    Cura2.png

    So how do I manually add my Robo C2 to the latest version of Cura???

    FFF = FDM

    if that helps you any

    Fused filament fabrication (FFF)
    Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM)

    usually they mean the same thing for a printer FDM is a trademarked term while FFF is not.

    You will need to manually fix the machine settings. What OS are you using? (Windows, Mac, or Linux)

    Follow the directions at this URL, but skip step 1. Instead, use the latest version of Cura instead of the listed version of 2.5

    Also, please remember that Cura is not Robo native. It is set up for a 2.85 mm filament. Read the second posting of the R2 FAQ.

    Yes, delete the Gcode in both boxes. 197 x 197 x 250 ( X, Y, Z )
