Hello all, I was looking into the json files and I saw this

 

resolveOrValue('layer_height')

 

Now, I tried to search what it does, and I found this

ExtruderManager.py

Now, I get the value part that it takes the value if resolve is not there, but my question is that what resolve actually means ?

Does it means the value which user gave as input in the GUI or something else ?

Thanks

    The "resolved" value of a setting is the value that should be used when two extruders have a conflicting value. For example, if you have two extruders with two different materials, they may specify different bed temperatures. The "resolve" function for the bed temperature as specified in fdm_printer.def.json is "max(extruderValues('material_bed_temperature'))", ie: the maximum value of the bed temperatures specified in all extruders.

    Thanks for explaining the part. It really helped.
