Cura not switching to .8 printcores

Recommended Posts

I switched out both .4 printcores to .8 printcores.

But in Cura it does not switch to .8 printcores. When I click on the printcore2 tab I see 'Automatic BB0.8' and BB0.4. When I select the Automatic BB0.8, it stays on BB 0.4.

I can't get it to switch to the new installed core BB0.8.

Any ideas.

(This is a new UM3).

Yes, the printer sees that the NFC is present.

And it labels each of the spools of material correctly. 1-PLA and 2-Natural PVA. Yesterday, I did a factory reset on the printer and put the AA/BB .4 back in.

And I did a calibrate. It (Cura) recognizes the .4 AA and BB .4.

I will try the .8 AA and BB tomorrow.

I meant that last sentence to be the UM3 did not recognize the AA/BB .8 printcores.

...but this means that there's something wrong with the printcores and not with Cura.

If the printcore itself - (and the printer as a consequence of this) is reporting the wrong size, how should Cura be able to correct this?

Is it possible, that your printcores are labelled wrong, or programmed wrong?

    • "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.
