How can I share machine and support profiles across multiple pc's?

From Magics 23 onwards, the support profile library has been discontinued and all this information is now saved centrally in the Machine Library.

In order for multiple people to use the same configurations, this is possible through sharing the Machine Library and/or specific .mmcf files.  This also gives the additional benefit that apart from support profile information, also info on part placement, build time estimation, default parts and more is shared.

To achieve this, you can share the folder of specific files found in

C:\ProgramData\Materialise\Magics\My Machines

You can point your installation of Magics 23 and later to use this folder using

Magics Settings>File I/O>WorkingFolders>My Machines Folder


If sharing Machine Library files on the network, you need to limit the edit rights to these files so only designated people can edit.
