Organize overides{...} section in definition file

Posted · Organize overides{...} section in definition file

Hey I have a quick question, because I have many entries in the "overrides": {...} section of my definition file I was wondering if it is possible to organise these in section life it is done in the fdmprinter.def.json. What I would like to have is something like this:

"overrides": {
		"machine_shape": { "default_value": "elliptic" },
		"machine_width": { "default_value": 270},
		"machine_depth": { "default_value": 270}

By doing this I could keep the overrides all in their corresponding sections, an the sections would be collapsable in my editor. I tried what I posted above but that sadly doesn't work. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for the help!

    I don't think there is a way to do this right now, sorry.


    Sad. Do you think this would be a desirable feature? I don't not a lot of people are creating their on definition files but it would definitely help those people out how do.
