Prusaslicer Profile Dependency trickery need help

Our club has 3 MK3s with different nozzle sizes and Filaments.

 

I want to create Print profiles that can be copied to a lot of computers.

 

In Prusaslicer I want to choose a Physical printer.

Than there should ONLY be the Filaments and Print settings that I have created and NOT the Prusa ones.

 

Like if you create a new Printer from scratch and create Filament profiles and Print setting Profiles for that. (I don‘t do that because I still want to keep the bed shape model and texture witch also gets lost if you detach from system present)

 

 

 

So I need Help with either a way how you can transfer bed shape and model to other computers or with Dependency trickery. What would be best?

 

I tried around for hours but no Luck.

Best Answer by bobstro:

I have notes on creating custom profiles and setting dependencies here that might be helpful. In short, yes. I have 3 printers, each with associated filament and print profiles. Using dependencies, I only see the relevant presets for each printer and nozzle combo.

Here are the files for bed and texture
C:\Program Files\Prusa3D\PrusaSlicer\resources\profiles\PrusaResearch\mk3_bed.stl (bed model)
C:\Program Files\Prusa3D\PrusaSlicer\resources\profiles\PrusaResearch\mk3.svg (the lines on the bed)

If you detach printer from system preset you can add the above files in "Printer Settings" - "General" - "Bed shape".

@ringarn67

thanks for the paths.

how do I do it, so that you simply have to coppy over profiles to a new PC and the bed model is still shown? Those profiles will be used with Windows, Linux and Macs. So I imagine if I hard Link to those Files, it will only work for Windows PCs.

Do you think I can Include those files in a Profiles Folder and than softlink to them?

Yes, you can do this with dependencies

I only have Windows Pc's so I am afraid I don't have a clue 😌

Config bundles work well across all platforms

Just create config bundle files and users on any platform can easily import them.

your notes solved my problem

your notes solved my problem.

I changed the Printer name from MK3s to Prusa_gruen in the printer file and checked the checkbox to single extruder multi material. don't know what that does but it hides every Prusa print and filament profile that I did not create.

in my profiles I wrote as compatible conditions:

printer_model=~/Prusa_gruen.*/

Dependencies are clumsy, but they do work!

Glad it worked for you. The dependencies are a bit clumsy, but they do work. Hopefully, Prusa will make them easier to work with in future releases of PrusaSlicer.
