Printer based filament settings

Hello Dear Friends.

I was wondering if there is any way to make it so that the printer remembers the filament settings on a filament change. I don't just mean PLA/ABS/PETG options which come up with doing a change. I mean something like:

PLA - ESUN Yellow (210/60)

PLA - 3DQF Orange (205/60)

PLA - Prusa Red (210/60)

Then it would be amazing if the temp settings (and even flow!) for sliced files were simply overwritten for each filament type. I find myself doing quite a lot of filament changes. This would help.


Maybe it already exists?

Not sure if this is the easiest way but if you select a similar filament, click on the "Save current filament setting", you'll be offered an option to change the name of the filament then save it. In you case "PLA - ESUN Yellow (210/60)". The new filament should appear in "User Presets".

No it doesn't exist in firmware so you could choose at loading time. As towlerg suggested, best option is to save presets in Prusaslicer.
