Restoring Simplify3D Settings

New user here with the M3 Dual Independent. I had been printing some objects in PLA with very few issues and decided to try nGen. First attempt printed fairly well, but with a shifted layer. (I did notice that the print came off the bed extremely easily, so I'm guessing that it moved a bit while printing). I had printed using a raft and when I tried removing it most of the bottom layer of my object pulled off with it. Tried again, but I'm now having issues (no adhesion, balling of filament at the extruder) so I decided I would return to printing PLA for the time being. But then I noticed that with Auto Configure for Material set to PLA in S3D, the PLA settings had not returned but now reflected my most recent attempts at tweaking my settings for nGen.

How do I return to the out of the box settings for PLA (can they be reloaded from anywhere)? And is there a way to define new materials in S3D, or is that a matter of defining a new Process for each new material? Main thing at this point is to get back to the originally provided PLA settings.

Click the drop down next to profile and select the original profile for your printer. The one you are using probably says Modified next to it.
I would suggest heading over to the Simplify3D site and watching all the videos and reading all the stuff posted as that is the extent of the documentation. This software is apparently one of the best but with many bugs, not much detailed documentation and it seems like no active development.. There is a real steap learning curve and none of this is plug and play, get ready to spend a LOT of time experimenting and reading.. been a few months for me and just starting to feel like I have some what of a handle on it..
Good luck and I will see you over at S3D
