What Cura profile should be used with Octoprint?

Is there a page showing what settings to use with OctoPrint,or a downloadable profile for the Mk3? (The drivers page has files for the Mk1, and says the Mk2 is included in Cura, but has no mention of the Mk3).

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

In fact, the guide would probably benefit significantly from having an overall guide to setting up octoprint, rather than leaving everyone to figure it out for themselves

Hi Patrick,

to my knowledge, there is no official set of settings for the OctoPrint. I recommend slicing the model in Slic3r PE. Your suggestion is noted, I will present it to our devs ;)

It seems Cura doesn't really get along with the i3. My printer does all sorts of random things when printing with it, such as skip like 50 layers and start printing in air, or just general bad looking prints.

Just use Slic3r or Prusa Control
