Information Tab

Mon Dec 19, 2016 10:11 pm

I wouldn't mind having an info tab with a textbox that would allow me to enter and save notes to a profile - things like script snippets, fine adjustments, temperature tweaks, observations and other sundry information. I currently do this with comments in the Starting Script tab, but this is asking for trouble since scripts get executed and cause errors when I forget the semicolon.

I quickly lose track of all the Profiles I've created for every scenario. Rather, I prefer to have a few filament specific profiles, and make subtle changes on a case-by-case basis. This is where a notes field would be quite handy.

This would be a most useful addition to the profile suggested a long time ago:

Oh boy, 3 years ago. I guess I shouldn't hold my breath. Perhaps this post will rekindle some interest.

This is actually a good suggestion. Helps a lot of this info is embedded in the gcode as well.

I bought Simplify3D 3 days ago and came to the forums to find out how to add notes to a profile. It seemed like such a useful thing that I was sure I wasn't looking in the right place. Since I'm wrong about being wrong and profile notes is not a feature, add my vote to the tally!

Right now my specific use case is I'm following these instructions to calibrate the extrusion multiplier for PETG. It would be great to be able to keep a log of results attached to my "PETG calibration" profile.

Thank you for your attention to this, developers!
