Filament presets are not showing up for every printer

Dear all,

a lot of filament presets or print settings that I created for my MK2.5. are not showing up in my Ender 3 (or other printers) settings.

What is the procedure to let it show up? Unfortunately, I don´t understand the already posted solutions. Importing "old" config bundles does not help.
Thank you, Peter

Best regards, Peter

I'm also having this problem. I have some custom filament settings set for my I3 and Voron but when I went to slice some stuff for my friend's Ender 3 all of the Filament options change. I would expect these to be independent of the printer.

Same.  Have struggled with this for awhile.  I'll detach a print setting and save it.  Select all printers and all print settings and it won't work.  Plus the saved checkboxes will change the next time it opens.  

I can save a new preset for a MK3S+ and it will show as there for a MINI but will not show for a MMU2 printer.  Time waste.  Frustrating.

I also have this frustrating problem, but only switching between an MK3S, an MKs3+ and a Mini. I'm pretty sure it happened after I installed a friend's Artillery printer in Prusaslicer (since deleted). Has anyone found _any_ solution? I have a lot of customizations in my slicer and really don't want to want to do a full reinstall....

This is a feature of Prusaslicer. It prevents inappropriate profiles being selected (profiles for Mk3 used on brand x printer).

Select each material in turn and create a copy with an appropriate name (something to indicate target printer). Now look at Printer Settings/Notes, and you will see at least 2 variables, in my case  PRINTER_VENDOR_SOVOL PRINTER_MODEL_SV01). Now look at copied profile, Filament Settings/Dependencies/Compatible Printer Conditions  and change it to your PRINTER_MODEL, so in my case printer_model!="SV01".

Obviously you will need to make changes to the copied version of the MK3 filament profiles to suite your brand x printer.

Does anybody know what the exclamation mark means?

I understand the above may seem complicated, please post if anything is unclear.

Not withstanding the above if you still wish to mix-n-match printers and filament profiles there is a setting in preferences, "show incompatible print and filament profiles" which would seem (I have not tried it) allow this.

Thanks for the info. Shortly after posting, I just rebuild the filament profiles I needed from scratch. I have plenty of others, so I'll give the above a try.

I will say, though, that I'm confused about why filament profiles would deemed incompatible by default. I know there are cases--different filament width, direct drive with flex vs bowden tube--but it seems like they are the exception, not the rule, and that it's more hassle to create a new profile from scratch then to just copy and adapt a profile from another printer.

Thanks @towlerg

The filament settings are showing up in the other printers when the setting is enabled. Needed to restart PrusaSlicer through.

I would guess the most common would be incompatible max temps.

It seems that PS reads the profiles on start up, then uses local cache.
