Materials Profile for Multiple Printers

Posted (edited) · Materials Profile for Multiple Printers

Hi,

I have been away from printing for a while and caught the bug again.  I first have to say I LOVE the new 4.3 version (I was 2.something before). Im getting fantastic prints now. 

 

Here is my question. I have two printers a Kossel with a boden tube and an I3 with a direct drive.    Each printer has very different retraction setting. My printer with the boden tube needs a retraction of 7mm and my Direct Drive needs .5mm typically (everything else is the same).  Is there a way for me to have separate material profiles for each printer?  It seems if I set the retraction distance for the material for one printer (in the materials) and then change printers it keeps that last settings. 

 

I hate having to remember and reset the retraction when I change printers and materials. 

 

Thanks for the help

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
