It's ridiculous.. I can't tell what options gets saved between High, Medium and Fast quality settings, or materials.
Honesty, they should be broken out into separate windows.
Material and Quality settings should should augment (and preferably show the difference between) the default Machine settings, but never replace the machine defaults. If you need a global change, it should be changed in the machine settings, and globally effect all material and quality profiles. Nothing worse than having to tweek the g-code settings, and then change them for all my profiles.
I'd also like to see the gcode have more variables for different profile values, like pre-heat settings. Maybe I'm the only one that sees this because my printer has auto-cleaning and auto-bed levelling. Cleaning the nozzle requires a different temp between PLA and ABS for instance.
But yeah, my frustration with S3D is completely with the profile system. Slicing functionality works fantastic.
And please for heaven's sake.. save the profiles to the filesystem, not the cloud or registry.
