Filament config files

  • Hi All,

    Where are we up to with filament config files? Is anyone using them successfully?

    To be honest I do most things in the slicer, but I'd really like to have a couple of things in a file so I don't have to change config.g over it. I'd like the file to have:

    1. Esteps/mm
    2. Z trigger height (I print on Printbite, each filament likes something slightly different).
    3. Pressure advance if I use it.

    I don't want to get into temps/retraction/etc in the firmware, I'll do that in the slicer or on the fly if required.

    Is this a working feature yet, or under development?

    Cheers for any advice in advance,

    Yes, it works.

    Whether it suits your workflow is up to you.

    If you're using a lot of different settings for a lot of different filaments it might be worth while setting up custom load and unload macros for each one. You can also setup a custom config.g.

    Or if you don't want to bother with the load/unload operation in DWC, you could just have your custom settings in their own macros and call them as needed.

  • Cheers Jason,

    Sounds like an "another time" job lol
