Ultimaker 2 Extended and Nozzle 0.3

Recommended Posts

Hi i downloaded the last Version of Cura 2.6.2

for the Ultimaker 2 Extendet i have only 0.4,0.25 nozzle size in the pulldown menu (right side on the top).

in the 15.04.5 Version was a Edit Field.

Is there a way I extend the value in the pull-down menu?

So the calculations are also correct for the g-code.

best regards

Michael

There are two things you can do:

The first is to add another Ultimaker 2 Extended (name it eg Ultimaker 2 Extended 0.3), and tell Cura you don't have an Olsson block. You can then go to "Manage Printers...", open the "Machine Settings" and set the "Nozzle size" to 0.3 mm.

The more complicated way is to open your configuration folder (Help -> Show configuration folder). There should be a folder named "variants" there. In that folder, create a file named "ultimaker2_extended_0.3.inst.cfg" with the following contents:

[general]
name = 0.3 mm
version = 2
definition = ultimaker2_extended
[metadata]
author = Ultimaker
type = variant
setting_version = 1
[values]
machine_nozzle_size = 0.3
machine_nozzle_tip_outer_diameter = 0.8

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
