Hi Community.

I am still confused. I have an Ultimaker2+ . As you know there are two options to select the print material.

Where i have to choose it? Only in Ultimaker menu or also or just in Cura? i updated cura to 2.3 yesterday.

Will be the whole print settings totally the same if i change the matrial only in Cura but not in the Ultimaker??

thank you in advance!

    Change both. On the printer it will set settings like temperatures and fan speeds. In cura it will load print settings that are tuned for that particular material such as speeds, bed adhesion and layer heights.

    However, the profiles for materials in cura should be seen as a starting point. They're meant to be a good "average print" setting and may need to be tweaked for your particular model or needs.
