How Do I Create Custom Profiles in MakerBot Desktop?

    If you need to save a specific group of settings for slicing certain prints, you can do that by creating a custom profile.

    To create a custom profile:

    1. Go into the Prepare tab in MakerBot Desktop and click Settings.

    2. In the Custom tab, click the + button.

    3. Type in a name and description for your profile and select the material you’ll be using and the basic profile you want your new profile to be based on.

    Use the categories and settings in the center and right panes of the Custom tab to edit the profile. If you need to edit settings that aren’t available in the Custom tab, you can click Edit in Text Editor to edit the profile directly.

    All changes to your profile will be saved when you exit the Settings dialog. The saved profile will be available in the left column of the Custom tab until you delete it, which you can do by highlighting the profile name and clicking the - button at the lower left.
