Feature Request 2 - A better profile layout setup, thing...

Recommended Posts

Last request i promise.....

 

Again my other bugbear of Cura is the some what messy (at least to me) print profile system...

 

This is of course much tidier if your using a ultimaker... But on the "other" printer options the system is a bit messy... 

 

For instance. If i want to change material I have to manually go through everything and change it to the specs of the material im about to use...

 

In the "other" slicer i use it has a profile system... Its categorised like a tree... You select the base material, This is where costs and basic common settings are held, and you then select the print profile you have tuned for your printer at the specific setting you want, For instance the other slicer i have profiles for abs petg and pla, at different nozzle widths and layer heights and print speeds, all tuned really well. 

 

Im not mentioning this other slicer unless some one says its ok, I didnt want to pee anyone off... But its just one of those little thing for me thats really lacking in Cura... to me at least... Many other elements I REALLY love, its a great fast engine that create some really well sliced and even faster printing models compared to other slicers (even with speed settings the same, not sure whats happening there) But the lack of well defined profiles and the super strong support structures are the only things that are keeping me from using cura full time.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
