New material additions in the 2+ printers

Recommended Posts

Posted · New material additions in the 2+ printers

Following a ultimaker 2 owner's directions, I was going to manually edit the materials file to add additional materials I have.. his only lists ONE temperature setting, but mine lists multiples!









Ultimaker 2+













Can anyone explain what the additional temperature listings are for, and what I should be shooting for in adding new entries for specific filament brands?

    Actually, someone from ultimaker chirped up in the ultimaker owner fb group.

    The settings correspond to the nozzle sizes that come with the new printers. From first to last, they go from smallest to largest diameter. The printer must have some way to read the nozzle size and then adjust the temperature based on the current material settings. A nice little feature addition that wasn't mentioned anywhere that I've seen. Here's his helpful post:

    It basically starts at the smallest olson block nozzle & counts it's way up to the biggest."
