Cura materials and profiles confusing

Recommended Posts

Moving from Slic3r to Cura 3.1 its not clear to me how materials and profiles interact. Do the material values, extruder temp for example, over-ride the temps in the profile, or vice versa?

 

My setting for each filament brand/color/type are different each model requires different profile settings. I'm accumulating quite a few of each. I forget to change the material type AND the profile when I change filaments/models. So I disabled 'materials view' and use just profiles. This has a number of drawbacks. For example, all my part views are in yellow which makes them hard to see.

 

What am I missing?

BTW is there a cfg file (Theme?) where I can change the default part color?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
