Cannot add new material profiles

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am trying to add a new material profile for PETG, but after filling out 2-3 fields the software cancels the adding of a new profile and selects the ABS profile at the top of the list.

I have tried duplicating and creating, both same result. I have added material profiles before without a problem, but now it is not playing ball.

I have the latest update, restarted PC, everything I can think of.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

You don't state which machine your using, but had similar problems with my UM2 whilst trying to add PVA - looks like Ultimaker do not allow any 'materials' they think your machine can not run ?

Have a look at this thread - I found a way around this problem ?

UM3, but its rather irrelevant seeing as the issue is Cura.

Thanks for link mate, you're a legend. This should get me there

    • "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.
