Cura 2.3.1 - Preferances, Materials

Hi all,

having recently installed the new Cura, I spent quite a while exploring the software and trying out the various new and re-imagined functions. I really liked the feature in version 15 that showed the projected cost of the part to print, and was encouraged that I could find the place to input the cost of the materials used. However, it is not as straightforward as I would have thought, and in fact it might not be possible, despite the settings appearing to be there. I've made a copy of a material, edited all the settings available, but the "Filament Cost", "Filament weight", "Filament length" and "Cost per Meter (approx) remain stubbornly un-editable.

How can I put these values in? Is there any way to edit these settings at the moment, or is this a partially implemented feature?

I hope there is a trick to this, or there is an expected update that will fix this issue?

Cheers,

Bill

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
