✔︎ longer names for custom materials [SOLVED]

Post by effgee » Mon Jul 24, 2017 2:21 am

Currently when a custom material is saved, the name is limited to 5 or 6 character.
This makes it next to impossible to note the material, manufacturer, supplier or other useful information.

Please allow at least 32 characters.

(currently using 1.8.1.0 PC)

I think the same.
My solution for now is to save them by temperatures: 250ºC, 240ºC and so on.

Agree - even if we got about 15 characters it would be better - also allow more slots for custom settings.

Don't feel bad, I reported that Studio is trying to smash one of our UPBOX machines apart; that was 2 weeks ago. No response from TT...

Have you tried the latest software with Material Profile Manager? To add the filament with MPM will allow you to name the filament with more characters.

Hi Elaine. That's just in beta isn't it, not released?

Cheers,
