  1. Well, here's my quick and dirty solution: I added a printer - the Prusa i3 Mk2 - and renamed it to Anycubic i3 Mega Ultrabase. I then manually copied all the parameters in the Machine Settings from the Anycubic i3 Mega over to the new Anycubic i3 Mega Ultrabase printer. It now defaults to a print speed of 60mms (instead of the 50mms it was using), but side from that I don't see any drawbacks so far. But given my newb status, your mileage might vary (I only own 1 printer and only had it for 34 hours and counting). But Cura now allows me to select the filament type and allows me to adjust temperatures manually via the custom tab. So I guess that's one quick and dirty solution, but I'm not 100% sure if that's the best solution - so you could try that at your own risk.
  2. Sorry, I should report I'm using Cura 3.3.1 from Ubuntu repo's (I normally use Kubuntu) and ended up trying Cura 3.6.0 in Windows 10 on my gaming rig.
  3. Interesting, so it should and does have that feature, just for some reason it's not functional for making G code files for the i3 Mega (newb who just got an Anycubic i3 Mega Ultra base yesterday and have been trying to get Cura to work nicely right from the get go). But for me, going by settings -> profile -> manage profile -> material doesn't work, it sticks to using what ever Cura is defaulting to for this printer. I can also hit the custom tab, and even make changes to temperatures there and it still produces G code that does not pay attention to user set temperature settings (haven't played around with other settings - yet). The only solution I have at the moment is to use notepad and manually edit the resulting G code file to fix bed/extruder temperatures (M104/M109, M140/M190).
