Materials Profile for Multiple Printers

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Materials Profile for Multiple Printers


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
