Organize profiles by filament name

Posted · Organize profiles by filament name

I’ve downloaded some profiles that I’m using to print PLA, since I’ve bought filament spools of various brands and characteristics that requires slightly different settings from the profile I always use I was hoping I could create a new material then duplicate or re-import the profiles and modify them to keep them organized by the material brand/name but I don't know if it's possible.

 

For example, if I create a new material and use PLA as the Material Type all the profiles are available in all the different PLA materials but I would like to keep the profiles separate for for each material, is this possible?

 

Thanks

    That's not what we want. We want to have profiles sorted by material : when you create a material A and then create a profile 1 inside the material A, then create a material B, we want the profile 1 to not being available when selecting material B but to be only available when selecting material A @dsp
    Ideamaker is already doing this, and it's a must have to prevent errors while selecting profile and materials, and it's a gain of productivity.

    oh i think I understand now, you want to be able to select the image.png.959d08e600b494bd3dbda9761899ff48.png

    based on the material you choose.

     

    interesting, 

     

    we use an excel to keep track of all settings for the different filaments

    but this would def. be more user friendly

    yes that's what we are looking for, and I sincerely hope that this request will be implemented. I would be a great improvement of the use of Cura.

    It seems difficult to implement, the only "filter" on the profiles is related to the machine.

    It would probably be possible to have a plugin that would do this, something like the Startup Optimiser plugin from @fieldOfView but it seems complicated for a limited number of users in the end.

    I just tried it but I can still access all the previous profiles I created on my old "machine profile" while selecting the "new machine profile" ... so it still doesn't make it as you can see on the screenshot below @Cuq

    Or maybe is there a way to define which profiles are compatible with a given "machine" ?

    Yes because your "New machine profile" is just a modification of the initial machine and the "Filter" is done on the initial machine. More explanation on how the stacked profile system works by @nallath  https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Settings

     

    Your new machine profile is considered in this case as a definition-changes container  : https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Settings#definition-changes

    Thanks for your links, but I didn't understand 5% of its content. @Cuq

    How do I control it : is there a way the make Cura understand that I want the new machine profile to be independent of all other machine profiles ?

    In a simple way and accessible to everyone: no 🤔

    Then I pray for the devs to understand that my request is meaningful.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
