Sample PrusaSlicer profiles

I’ve bundled up a working set of PrusaSlicer profiles for various nozzle size and speed settings. Each custom profile contains my initials (RLG) and the date last updated to avoid confusion.

Caution

I’ve worked with each of these profiles, but make no warranty as to their suitability for use on your printer. Be careful if you have not calibrated your current nozzle and Live-Z settings. I have done some basic prints using each of these settings, but they are all “experimental” and not guaranteed perfect. Use at your own risk!

Note

These notes are based on my experiences with the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 printers. If you are using a different printer, please verify the hardware details are same. These pages may be a bit rough as I revise them and add new material. Please check back regularly for updates.

You can download my PrusaSlicer profiles as of February 26, 2020 here.

Note

These profiles are provided as a PrusaSlicer config bundle containing printer, print and filament profiles. Prusa is in the process of revamping the profile dependency process, so system profiles may not be selectable when you use these. Just select a Prusa profile to restore the system profiles. I’ll be updating these profiles once the dependency process is finalized.

To use these profiles:

  1. Download the config bundle archive named PrusaSlicer_config_bundle.zip.

  2. Extract the config bundle archive. It will contain a file named PrusaSlicer_config_bundle_<date>.ini.

  3. Open PrusaSlicer and select File->Load Config Bundle.

  4. Select the extracted .ini file and select OK.

PrusaSlicer will display an indicator that the custom profiles have been successfully imported:

Check your Printer Settings, Filament Settings and Print Settings to confirm that the custom profiles have been loaded.

Note

I use a PINDA warmup procedure that will cause the printer to pause with the nozzle positioned close to the heated bed as it warms to 35C. You’ll notice the bed temp is warm and nothing seems to happen, particularly on the first print of a session in a cold setting. Be patient and monitor the temperatures under Support->Temperatures on the printer menu. More information on this procedure can be found in my Customizing PrusaSlicer g-code notes
