Price of filament not connected to material type?

Fri Sep 15, 2017 6:13 pm

Hello,
it's a minor thing, but I wondered why the price per kg of the filament (tab "Other") is not connected to the filament type at all.
When I enter e.g. 50 for wood filament - and then change the filament type in the drop-down-box "Auto-Configure for Material" - the price tag stays the same. When I change it for PLA to e.g. 20 and switch back to wood, then the price sticks at 20. So, there seems only to be ONE field to store the price information - and this field is connected to the machine profile, but not to the chosen filament.

Is this a bug - or do I expect something wrong?

Thanks,
Boby

There's already many posts on the forum about how to do this. You just add the < filamentPricesPerKg> tag into each <autoConfigureMaterial> section.

Search the forum and you'll find the answers ;)

Thank you, I was looking here for answers before, but it seems I was looking/searching into the wrong direction.
Wasn't expecting to be able to do this myself in the FFF file though.

Thanks,
Boby
