Posted · Cura 2.3.1 material not visible

Dear Community members,

I installed Cura 2.3.1 (latest version that will run on a win32 pc). But I dont get to choose materials from the interface. 

This is what it looks like: 136504379_mycura.thumb.jpg.e23cf18ee5adb8394463eedbb42b43d9.jpg

however, in the install guide it looks like this:89800612_quickstart.thumb.jpg.bd158ed070c31ae484728e0484c95072.jpg

Am I missing something? I must add that my UM2 will not connect over USB, does that have anything to do with it?

Hoping for your input, Maarten

    I'm running the latest cura (3.3.1) and it doesn't let me choose materials for um2go so I think that's normal for UM2.

     

    I recommend Cura 15.X over cura 2.3.  I think it's easier to use and less buggy.  Cura 3.X is great but cura 2.3 not so great.

    I think in Cura 2.3 you could already go into Machine Settings for the UM2Go, and change the G-Code flavour to “Reprap (Marlin/Sprinter)”. This should give you your material selection in Cura.
