Very new to Cura (and 3d printing in general). Can anyone explain the rational behind the temperature settings in the Materials section? How do those values relate the the temperature settings in the Material profile?

 

I have the Cura settings guide plugin but it just explains the significance the the values.

 

I'm I supposed to create a different Print settings profile for each material?

    When you switch from material A to material B, the "default" printing temperature don't have to be the same...

     

    For example, I print PLA on 210 degrees and TPU on 235 degrees... When I switch material from PLA to TPU the nozzle-temperature changes automatically! I have set both temperatures in the material-setting! The only thing I have to remember is to switch material when I switch filament 😉

    In the materials settings I have set the temperature on that the filament type prints the best on my printer, so for PLA I have set it to 210 and for TPU to 235...
