Materials Remove Tab Always Grey

Recommended Posts

Posted · Materials Remove Tab Always Grey

I want to remove an entry in my materials definitions but the REMOVE button seems to always be grayed out.  Do I have to go edit some file directly?

 

In general I find this management UI somewhat difficult to work with.

Is the profile active? If so you won't be able to remove it.

Ok thanks.  Any way to delete some of the predefined vendors?  I don't even recognize some of them.

Which ones are you referring to? Versions will ship with generic print profiles profiles and Ultimaker branded ones.

... and many others for printers supporting 1.75 mm filament diameter.

 

No, there is currently no way to delete some of those, unless you want to remove files from the /resources/materials folder in the application bundle (which I recommend you don't).

 

I am working on a plugin that will let you disable all non-generic materials: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/32126-cura-startup-optimiser-plugin-needs-testers/

An issue was identified. It needs fixing.

To answer the question I don't recognize any of them.  Since Ultimaker is a European vendor I think they're all European or EU market (Chinese) companies.   Around here the popular brands are Hatchbox, Dimension, Matterhacker, etc.

I have resubmitted that plugin for inclusion in the Marketplace. I have changed the function to disable all non-generic materials to leave your custom materials in peace, so it will only remove those predefined brands (unless they are used by a currently configured printer).
