OSX/Mac Where's the printer's configuration stored ?

  • I'm a new user of Matter Control on a Geeetech G2S Pro. I did my very first print with this software and it came out beautiful. As I now start to configure presets etc. I noticed that changes I make via the GUI are not reflected in the config.ini for this printer. As an example if I change the bed (round) diameter to 185 and save it, quit MC and the start again, the changes are there in the GUI but when I look in the printers config.ini file, it stills says 200,200. Where are the actual runtime settings kept ????

    The settings and values contained in the config.ini are used to structure the data that then gets committed to a database when you create and save a printer. Any slice settings values associated with your current printer instance that are edited and then saved are automatically saved to the database which is where your runtime settings are stored.

  • As @gdiaz01 said, they're in a database, which itself is located at ~/.local/share/MatterControl (.local may be hidden).
