UM3 firmware - filaments

Recommended Posts

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.

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
