Posted · Cura, How to get profiles automatically updated to the settings from the materials profiles

I want cura to automatically update printing temps, retractions, etc that are set in the materials.

I have to go in manually and change print temps for the materials everytime I change the material. It doesnt matter if I use default print profile or custom print profile.

 

So what does the material profile actually do?

    If you have some values in your profile for these parameters they automaticaly overwrite the material profile values.  So you need to be sure to remove from your profile specific parameters like printing temps, retractions, etc 

     

    It's not an easy job to do because as soon as you have modify/change one of these parameters it's too late, there is no function to go back.  In the Ultimaker world it's easy because profile are validate and created by Ultimaker; for the other people you must have a very good knowledge of the uses of the Cura stacked profile system and of the parameters in the profiles. A good start  https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Settings

     

    I use a specific plugin to clean up troublesome settings but the nature of the operation and the level of Cura users concerning these knowleges do not allow a general use of this tool.

    An other solution use the Material Settings Plugin.

    And to be sure to use always the Material value  . Right clic and "Use value from material"
