costomer setting in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · costomer setting in Cura


I am newbee with ultimaker 2+.

Today I was trying to print with t-glase, which was not a default supporting material in Ultimaker material menu.

I have set up the priting temp, and priting speed in Cura for t-glase. Now I am wondering which material should I choose from ultimaker material list menu?

does it matter if I choose another material in the ultimaker material list menu, for example PLA, while I have already set up the printing temp, bedplate temp and priting speed in Cura?

Thanks a lot

    If you select ultimaker 2 in cura I'm not sure, but it probably doesn't set the temp. I would slice it and save the gcode file and then open the file. Look for M104 and M109 commands. If there aren't any in there then I'm right and you can set the temp on the printer. If I'm wrong and there are M104 and or M109 commands then the printer temp is probably ignored once you start the print.

    If I'm right then you can just select PLA, then customize it, then change the values you want and then save that. After you hit save you have to say where to save it (that part is the most confusing part). If you select PLA it will overwrite that. Instead select something else like "CUSTOM0" and you can have CUSTOM0 be t-glase. Another choice is to choose "save to SD" and you can put the SD card in a computer and edit the text file and it lets you call it "T-GLASE" or whatever you want and then you can load the settings back into the printer. This particular feature was buggy in older versions of marlin so if you go this route upgrade to the latest Marlin for UM2+.
