Cura 2.3.1, Ultimaker 2+ and the Limited Nozzle Selection

Hello,

How can additional sizes of nozzles be added to Cura under the Ultimaker 2+ drop down?

I've recently added a 2 to 2+ upgrade and after adding the Ultimaker 2+ printer I've lost the ability to set my nozzles.

Thank you,

Gorn

    The 'Line With' setting does the same as nozzle size.

     

    So, don't use the drop down and instead ignore that and make multiple profiles?

    Why have the drop down?

    The drop down box refers to the nozzle sizes Cura has a material profile for. If you add your custom nozzle size to those profiles and also to your machine via materials.txt you can have your custom nozzle size in the drop down box. But it's much easier to adjust the line width as suggested by @peggyb.

    So, it no longer works like Cura-v15.x where you can enter any given nozzle size. That is a bummer.

    Ok, so how much should I offset from the Measured Extrusion Width for a given nozzle for Line Width?

    In Cura 2 the line width corresponds to 7/8th of the nozzle size.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
