    @Don Anderson did you check the R1 software subforum, I think R1 profiles have been posted many times already.

    Thanks for the tip. Didn't cross my mind to look there. Will do. Thanks again

    So I have been playing a lot with profiles in S3D and there are just, in my opinion, some settings that are just associated incorrectly. This has led me to separate all the materials into their own profiles rather than having a single RoboR2 profile. Some things that I think should be attached to material rather than global are things like:
    • All Filament Properties
    • Horizontal size compensation
    • Speeds can be vastly different between material choices
    • Retraction (although I can live with this as is)
    First layer Settings need to be attached to Print Quality just like Layer Settings already are.

    This post was just my observations.

    I have always run different profiles for different materials.
    See the ones I have posted elsewhere in the forums for folks to look at.

    It does make more sense to do it that way.

    I also think they make juggling profiles a bit clunkier than it should be (a UI usability issue to me).

    Yeah, I also think it is a bit too complicated - more than it should be. @WheresWaldo are you going to suggest a place for us to share these observations or even the FFF files ?
    I think the PLA works out of the gate, and I’m now going to look through my notes for what I did for ABS and PETG. I remember that PETG had some retraction changes and not just temp for hotend and plate

    If this forum had a file section that would be easy to do, right now I think it is a bit hard sharing especially as things change over time.
