Setting parameters for new material

Recommended Posts

I have taken delivery of FlexiFil by FormFutura.   The filament is not listed in Cura's standard list.   I see that you can make a custom material by I cannot see how to set the 

various settings for temperature and speed as listed here

I know that I can change most of these on the U3 that I have as the printing starts, but that is rather tedious.  I have just downloaded Cura 3.2.1

 

Sorry if this has been covered before

 

Thanks

 OK, now I understand.

First I go to Manage Material/Custom material/ Most of the settings are in the 2nd tab "Print Settings"

 

In the main Cura menu not all variables are shown.     If I go to one of the sections and hover until the cog is shown I then can find the menu called "Setting Visibility"   It is here that I can opt to show more variables on the print setting page.    Once visible, I can amend the settings for the profile

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
