What takes priority: Material or Profile?


Recommended Posts

Posted · What takes priority: Material or Profile?

If I set up a custom Material with 'Default printing Temperature' at 200°C and a custom Profile with the same parameter at 230°C, which of those takes precedence and will be applied, material or profile?


Or is there no overlap in the settings, ie 'Default printing temperature' is only recorded with the custom Material and not with the custom Profile?

    Profile overrules material, but usually the printing temperature is defined in the material and the profile has a formula to take that value and add for example 10 degrees, instead of overriding it with a hardcoded value.
