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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
