Save Filament Properties with Material AutoConfigure

I would like to see the Filament Properties (under the "other" tab) saved with each Material Autoconfigure. These parameters change with each filament type, and it would be convenient to have them stored here instead of having to re-configure them each time switch between filaments on my printer.

You can already do this. Just go to FIle > Export FFF Profile, then just add whatever filament settings you want into the <autoConfigureMaterial> sections.

There's dozens of threads on the forum that already explain how to do this. You only edit the FFF file once, then you can do everything else from the GUI because it remembers that the filament settings are now part of the material configuration.

Thanks for the tip. I guess I should revise my request to ask for a user interface that doesn't require me to edit configuration files in a text editor..... :roll:
