Tough PLA firmware support for Ultimaker 3

Recommended Posts

The specifications appear to be extremely close to regular PLA when you look at softening temperature (it's around 52C - same as PLA), printing temperature, strength,etc.  So I strongly suspect regular PLA print settings will be close enough until profiles come out.

We are aware of this issue and it is indeed a nuisance to override the configuration each time you want to print with our Tough PLA. We are working on a UM3 release for Tough PLA as we speak.

 

As a current workaround: you can select PLA in the printer, we only use those profiles for X/Y calibration and the bed leveling for example. Your actual prints from Cura will use the right profile.

We've released version 4.3.3 for the UM3 that contains the hotfix for the Tough PLA materials.

Don't want to hijack this topic, but does the new fimware also contain something else besides though PLA ?

Yep, that's the only change you'll notice in the update. (there was also a bootloader fix, but that's only for initial programming in our production facilities).

    • "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.
