Hello everybody,

I bought an Ultimaker extended 2+ in my company but in the interface machine there is only, listed 3material: PLA,ABS and CPE. I would like to use some other material like TPE and Nylon.

My question is:

Do you know how to edit on the interface machine a new material? Do we need to edit any other material we use,on Cura soft?

Thanks in advnace for your solutions!

See you

    You have several choices:

    1) You can just select PLA tell it to print and then while it is heating up go into the TUNE menu and change the bed and nozzle temperatures.

    2) You can create a custom material and it will be called CUSTOM1, CUSTOM2, etc. Do this in the materials menu and the menus are confusing but the main confusing point is that *after* you hit save you then have to select a material to save to - so pick custom.

    3) The best long term solution - once you know what temperature you like to print at - in the materials menu you can save all materials to the SD card. Then move the SD card to a computer and there is a file in there that is very easy to edit - create all kinds of custom materials like Nylon and call them "Nylon" and not "CUSTOM1". Then put the SD card back int he printer and load the settings from SD card.
