Can preset materials be edited? UM2+

Recommended Posts

Posted · Can preset materials be edited? UM2+

The parameters can be changed once the material type is selected but can they then be saved to the existing PLA, ABS, etc. profile?

If so, how?

See the explanation here: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/20982-custom-materials-ultimaker2-plus


Beware of a recently discovered bug here: the material name should be a maximum 7 characters, otherwise the printer will start to behave weird like resetting at the start of a print. Solution is to do a factory reset. This will be fixed in the firmware shipped with Cura 3.5.
