Hi, all.

I want to add the parameters of the flow to my material profile. But I cannot find the parameters for the xml.fdm_material profile which can allow it.
The reason to do this is that I need different parameters of the material flow for different materials and I want to change it automatically by changing the material.
Who knows how to do it - please let me know. Thanks.

    I believe you can call it as in the definition, but you have to change the syntax of the setting slightly:

    Thank you/ I will try to add it in the material configuration file.

    You can do this using the Material Settings plugin from the Marketplace. Caveat: I still have to update it for Cura 4.4.

    Yes, it works. Thank you.

    But maybe you also know how to add this parameter to the material configuration file? I try to make all settigns through this file.

    The plugin adds it to the (material) configuration file, just like @ZachRose suggests (but with fewer chances of putting it in the wrong place)

    Thanks to all. Now it works perfect.
