Specifying the default material in the JSON file?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Specifying the default material in the JSON file?

My printer only supports PLA.  How do I specify that in the JSON file, so that when a user creates a new printer from it, the Material setting is already "PLA".

See the metadata of the fdmprinter.def.json. It as ""preferred_material": "generic_pla","

So your new machine should already do this.

It doesn't work.  The new printer sets its material to PolyWood.

That would mean that generic_pla is not available for your printer. This can happen if you specify "has_machine_materials": true.

Can you try specifying "preferred_material": "*pla*" ?
