Prusa Slicer Cloud Settings - Sync Settings between PCs

Hi,

I use PrusaSlicer on several computers and each time I make tweaks of print, filament and printer settings I have to export a ConfigBundle and import them on the other computers manually. I store the bundle file on a gdrive folder to make the syncing a little easier but if for any reason I forget to update the profiles on any of the machines with the latest profile settings and I then tweak some other things, then my new exported bundle contains a mix of old and new settings (depending on what I just changed / changed last time on the other computer)...

Now, another way to do this would be to automatically sync the .ini files on "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\PrusaSlicer\" but the problem is that not all of the computers I use are on the same network and also not all of them run the same Prusa Slicer version all the time and I am not sure about cross-compatibility.

So a nice solution to this would be to be able to log into your account in PrusaSlicer and have all the settings stored on the cloud and getting to chose which settings should sync and which others not (like you get to do using the dropbox or gdrive apps). Also each time you open PrusaSlicer you could get a warning message letting you know there are new profiles available?

Maybe this is already on the pipeline or someone knows a workaround to this "issue"?

Marcel

Feature requests like this is best asked on GitHib: Here

PS has a command line option to specify the placement of the configuration files "-datadir", this makes it possible to store the files on a local share or in DropBox. Maybe this option can be used to do want you want.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

@area51

thanks for the tip. The only issue with this is that on one of the PCs I can't install dropbox (work PC without admin rights).

I'll open an feature request on GitHub.

I'm able to run SyncThing on a work PC without admin rights. I do have to launch it manually on login (it doesn't run as a service), but it works very well for this sort of thing.
