UM3 firmware - filaments


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM3 firmware - filaments

I think is necessary to put in firmware the same tipe of materials that are in Cura.

It is about Ultimaker filaments.

UM3 see PC (generic) because polycarbonate white has no NFC, but in Cura i can select Ultimaker PC white.

For that reason it is stupid always to go to that page "Print jobs" and press override.

    The printer cannot distinguish between Generic and color generic... because the menu structure to make that would be quite cumbersome to work with...

    Hence PC (Generic) and only NFC detected PC (White/other_colors).

    Because that doesn't match with Cura's selected profiles for slicing, you have to agree to override.

    I think this is a question for Cura and not the firmware section.

    So maybe @Msuurmond is able to answer this.
