Only show profile if certain material is selected?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Only show profile if certain material is selected?

Hello there, 

 

I hope this hasn't been asked before but I couldn't find the information i needed on google 😞 

 

I have a bunch of user profiles now and they display in the list all the time. This has made things very hard to manage even with a good naming scheme. I was wondering if there is a way to only display the profiles that are derived from the material that is currently selected. For example I have added Filamentive to my materials so when i have that selected I would only see the the profiles I made that were derived from the default profiles of that material. I also see profiles from the other printers I own in the list so you can imagine why this is confusing!

 

Is there such a feature or is my profiles bugged in some way? Hope all this makes sense!

 

Thanks a lot

 

All the best

 

Will 🙂

This feature doesn't exist, because the profile changes that you make don't depend on the material in any way. This is partially caused by having to support dual (or any multi) extrusion machines, because at that point the profile would depend on both materials, which causes all kinds of UX issues.

Ah I understand, thanks for your reply!

 

I was just wondering then, is there a way to folderise/categorise your custom profiles? So like all my Filamentive profiles could be in a folder and all my Ridgid.Ink ones could be in another for example? 

 

If I'm talking daft feel free to tell me! I just want to learn how to be more organised with the software and cant really find much out about this specific query. If it isn't a feature could I make this a feature request? lol

 

Thanks a lot,

 

All the best,

 

Will :)
