Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing from Polycarbonate

Hi,

have a problem with Ultimaker 3. It doesnt support printing from Polycarbonate (PC). No official Cura profile.

Is there anybody, who could please share Cura profile for PC for Ultimaker 3?

Thank you much,

Stepan

Hi, Stephan,

Welcome to the forum. Valcrow covers printing with PC on the UM3 here.

gr5 covers loading PC successfully in the UM3 (since there is no profile for it yet) here.

Cura 2.5 Recommended profile,Normal quality (0.1mm), selected White PC (Ultimaker)

Not perfect, but only diamonds are perfect.
