In the past, adding new filaments relied on Bambu Studio developers, which could require a lengthy wait. In this release, Bambu Studio provides a handy way to create custom filaments directly in Bambu Studio. There are guide steps.
The function entrance is on the filament set page. Click the "create new" button to start to create custom filaments.
Fill in the basic information of filament, such as vendor, filament type, and filament name. Then, choose a base filament to create the new one. The list below displays the printer among your current holdings that have presets for the filament you've chosen. We will create a user filament preset for each of the selected printers.
If you wish to combine the same type of system preset and user filament preset into a new filament, please select 'Copy current filament preset'.
After that, the new filament could be seen in the user presets list. It can be seen that the naming convention for the new filament preset is as follows: "Vendor Type Serial @Printer you selected"
Modify the needed filament parameters on filament settings page, and save it. The custom filament is created successfully.
If you've added a new printer and want to create a preset for this filament or if you want to delete the filament presets you've created, you can access the Edit Filament page to perform these actions.
As you can see, this interface is divided into two parts: one part contains the basic information about the filament, and the other part contains the detailed information and functions related to the filament, including preset information display, adding filament presets, and deleting the filament.
When you want to add a preset for this filament to a new printer or create a new preset for an existing printer, click the '+ Add preset' button, select the printer you want to add it to, and choose the appropriate base preset. Clicking the "OK" button will update the preset tree.
If you no longer need this filament, you can click the 'Delete Filament' button, which will delete all presets associated with this filament.
When user preset synchronization is enabled, the newly created filaments presets will be uploaded to the server cloud.
However, the server level can only store a limited number of user presets. Currently we only support 20 printer presets, 100 process presets, and 200 filaments.
When all user presets exceed the above limits, newly created or imported presets will only be saved locally and cannot be synchronized with user presets under the current account on another computer.
In this case, Studio will have some prompts.
However, you can manually synchronize presets on multiple computers by exporting and importing presets.
