    You don't state which machine your using, but had similar problems with my UM2 whilst trying to add PVA - looks like Ultimaker do not allow any 'materials' they think your machine can not run ?

    Have a look at this thread - I found a way around this problem ?




    UM3, but its rather irrelevant seeing as the issue is Cura.

    Thanks for link mate, you're a legend. This should get me there

  2. Hi guys,

    I am trying to add a new material profile for PETG, but after filling out 2-3 fields the software cancels the adding of a new profile and selects the ABS profile at the top of the list.

    I have tried duplicating and creating, both same result. I have added material profiles before without a problem, but now it is not playing ball.

    I have the latest update, restarted PC, everything I can think of.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

  3. I have a few UM3s and a UM3E, but I was looking at getting a Lulzbot Taz 6 for its larger print volume.

    I would like to keep using Cura as my main slicing program seeing as it is so great and easy to use;

    although I checked the "Add Printer" list of supported printers and noticed Lulzbot is not there, not even there older machines.


    Are there any plans to add support for them?

  4. Ok, so I tried capillary action with water, alcohol and even window cleaner to no avail.

    Ended up heating the bed to 65/70'c and pushed a plastic paint scraper under the print.

    Only minimal warping after it had cooled (: but the adhesion sheet was destroyed.

    Honestly my big issue with this, is that my supplier put me onto these adhesion sheets when I asked him for PEI sheets, which Australia apparently cannot get their collective hands on.

    I will hang onto the adhesion sheets for CPE and other tempermental materials

  5. I would not use the adhesion sheet for something like PLA for a variety of reasons, but mostly because there are cheaper alternatives for that type of material.

    I believe they were for materials like ABS, PC and things that tend to warp a bit off the plate.

    But, that is a guess on my part as I have not gotten around to testing that out yet.

    Fair point.

    But I am still stuck with a print solidly adhered to a plate, and I would rather get the print off without destroying the sheet. This is my current dilemma.

    I had the idea of putting the glass plate back in the Ulti3 and cranking up the heat until it seperates. The adhesion sheets can happily go up to 100'c.

  6. Got my kit yesterday, slapped on an adhesive sheet and started a print (100mm x 100mm print)

    Now I can't get the PLA print off the plate without destroying the adhesive sheet. Its stuck so good I'm worried about breaking the glass plate during removal.

    Does anybody have any experience with these, or perhaps a tip or trick I don't know yet?

    My next attempt involves modifying a paint scraper, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
