Suggestion for handling print core settings (temp, etc)

Posted · Suggestion for handling print core settings (temp, etc)

I recently switched to Cura 2.7, and am glad to see the continuous improvement of the software with regard to how it is handling dual extrusion setup. Thanks for that effort!

An idea to further improve is the less intuitive (and hence error-prone) handling of temperature profiles. As I more or less tried to deduce, I think the actual temperature used is a combination of settings:

Print Core & Material +

Profile +

Default settings

These are all stored for both cores in a single setting file. So in the end this is quite cumbersome when changing material, changing cores, use settings of one profile from core 1 in core 2, or in general where to change temperature settings in the first place (e.g. Print Core & Material or Profile).

My idea is to handle materials differently:

- merge Print Core & Material settings with Profile settings --> make one settings profile

- store these settings per core

 

I wonder if that would simplify and improve Cura further or is this an over-simplification?
