  1. I've been using ColorFabb PLA/PHA for every day printing on my UMO for a while now. I like the reduced brittleness and increased toughness and it's all been high quality. UM included a roll of Tough PLA with my S5, and so far it seems nice as well, but I'm not familiar enough with it yet to make a detailed comparison. Has anybody found any significant advantages for one over the other?

How would I do this? Things I've tried: 1) Putting my changes into the extruder_left file for the profile in the quality_changes folder of my Cura configuration. This almost works. The calculated value shows up correctly when initially switching to the profile, but if I change the print speed
