Ultimaker 2 material set and print price

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 material set and print price

hi,

I got some Ultimakers, and one is UM2 without plus. Cura estimates price of prints, but UM2. I can not set material, so price is not estimated. It does not matter if I check "Olson Block" uprade or not. Can you fix it in next release?

Cheers!

The UM2 slices without knowing the material. So there is no way to display the price.

But I do know the material. I need the estimate price. Why wouldn't you allow me to do so? UM2+ and UMO slices with material set. On UM2+ I can slice with PLA set, and print with ABS then. Only UMO got temperatures set in gcode. UM2 and UM2+ use ultigcode.

Workaround: add a new printer to Cura, use the Ultimaker 2+ definition instead of the Ultimaker 2 definition. You get better profiles, that print just fine on the Ultimaker 2.

I can't understand why I do have to workaround. I have UM2+, UMO's and UM2. So I check price often, using UM2+ profile, than switch to UM2. But WHY?!
