Hey there


As someone who likes to play around with his profiles every now and then I often encounter a problem. I would like to have seperate profiles for fast printing and slow (better quality) printing. The more or less only thing I would change for this is the printing speed.

Whenever I change settings like infill pattern which I would need to change it in both profiles. Having multiple profiles makes this impossible to me. I always have ti think about thich setting I have to adjust in other profiles as well so I end up using only one profile and just change the print speed before a print to whatever I need. For me this is a non ideal work flow.

My idea would be to link profiles. You would be able to to either create a copy as usual or create a linked copy. What that means is that it for the start it shares every setting. If I change the temperature in profile a it also changes it in profile b. You then can unlink certain settings which you want to have unique to that profile.

I know that this is a problem that is not existing to users who are that experienced that their settings are completely dialed in but I assume that isn't the case for everyone.

        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.
