Now in the machine settings?

It always *was* there (photo from v3.4.1)

...and also in Material->Diameter

...so I could "override" the machine settings using Material->Diameter

 

....but Material->Diameter seems to have gone on 3.6 so you *have* to set it in machine settings..

 

....at least I believe that's the case but would like sanity confirmation because the popup help in 3.6 seems to imply it can still be overriden:

You can sort-of get the setting back in the sidebar with the Printer Settings plugin from the Marketplace, though it will be in another category.

I tried using the printer settings plugin for this but the diameter setting is locked.

But I think this works, go to machine settings and change the gcode flavor to marlin, then click the extruder tab and modify the diameter, then go back and change the gcode flavor back (to UM2 in my case) 

Even though the editable diameter box under the extruder tab disappears the diameter you enter under the marlin setting will carry over and be the new default for all materials.

    • "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.
