Profiles vs Material


Recommended Posts

Posted · Profiles vs Material

I guess this is answered a million times. 

 

I have setup a material with
PLA at 200C 60C Bed, retract 1,5 and fan 40. 
PETg 235C 70C bed, retract 1.5 fan 0


As the default Draft profile need some tweeking I created a profile of my own. 

The problem I have is that the material settings no longer sets the heat settings. 

So the pre build profiles works with material settings but not customs one. Why is the same data saved in 2 places ? 
Is there a way I can edit the build in profiles  ?

Or make profiles follows the material settings.

    I am not 100% sure, but a profile saves only the differences to a default profile. So if you have manually set the print temp. before you saved the profile, the temp. is also save and set permanently. If you don't set a temp. and just do some other settings, the temp is not saved and should then work in your custom profile the same way as with the default ones when you change the material.

     

    But thats just theoretical, I haven't tried it, but I know that only changed values were saved.

    Because there are multiple reasons to change something. Eg; A material needs to change the temperature, but the same can be true for quality or the type of nozzle you are using.

    Not by means of the GUI.
