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?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
