chosen material settings doesn't appear in print settings

Posted (edited) · chosen material settings doesn't appear in print settings

hi, I am using ultimaker cura 4.6.2. I choose in the configuration panel a material. For example eSun PETG (printing temperature 245°, fan speed 40%) Whatever material I choose: In the print setting is always displayed 200°. Also every other value doesn't change. How get my wanted eSun PETG settings in the print settings?

    There are some explanations about the "stacked profile system" on the developer-wiki:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Settings

     

    The material settings are on the very bottom of the stack, so it's very likely that - in your example - the temperature is overridden by a profile with higher priority.

     

    The whole calculation depends on the chosen printer definition (and quality profile). Most of the non-Ultimaker profiles are contributed by the community (or more rarely by printer manufacturers).

    Which printer is it?

     

    Isn't there a reset icon visible like explained in the manual (6)?

    It's a Anycubic Mega-S. The icon visible is the fx manual (7) clicking that the value changes in the desired value and the arrow manual (6) appears, clicking the arrow icon the value switches back to the undesired value.

    It seems that the material changing works this way. Default printing temperature is transferred right, but the other important values like: Default Build Plate Temperature, Standby Temperature, Retraction Distance, Retraction Speed, Fan Speed don't get tranferred. This happens also with other materials from different companies in the database.
