UM2 Custom Settings List

Post by VitalSparks » November 12th, 2017, 7:43 am

There seems to be a limit on the number of entries that can be added to this list. Anyone know how to delete/edit entries?

Do you mean the Materials.Txt?

I don't know what that is. I am talking about the Material/Settings page on the UM2 display. This starts with PLA and ABS, followed by a number of Custom settings entered by the user. After Custom14, it is not possible to add any more, so I want to either modify earlier ones, or delete some of them to allow new settings to be added.

Save the file to the SD card and then you can edit it via any Textpad or other editor on the PC. It is very convenient as then you can actually rename the profiles to have meaningful names.
PSB my file:

Code: Select all

[material]
name=PLA temperature=210 bed_temperature=60  fan_speed=100 flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=ABS temperature=260 bed_temperature=90  fan_speed=50  flow=107 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=CPE temperature=250 bed_temperature=60  fan_speed=50  flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=MyABS temperature=255 bed_temperature=100 fan_speed=50  flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=MyPLA temperature=200 bed_temperature=60  fan_speed=100 flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=HDGlass temperature=210 bed_temperature=90  fan_speed=50  flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=TitanX   temperature=250 bed_temperature=95  fan_speed=60  flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=ApolloX  temperature=240 bed_temperature=90  fan_speed=25  flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]
name=PC        temperature=260 bed_temperature=100 fan_speed=0   flow=100 diameter=2.85
[material]

Thank you both for that info. I was not aware that this list existed in text form, or that it could be saved by UM2 on SD card. I will investigate...
