However, I would love to have future versions of Cura support the cc core for UM 3 configuration.

 

The only way that will happen is if Ultimaker sells an official extruder upgrade for the UM3.  Maybe a UM3+ will come out some day and maybe there will be an upgrade kit.

Cant wait that long. Hppe that happens some day, I assume it will. 

In the mean time, I plan to try this path. Can you send me the instructions on reprogramming the cc to core to look like an AA0.4

Thank you so much for your help. I will document the process for others.

Tough I've not used the DDG, I like the QR feeders as they let you easily inspect the gears visibly, and are easy to clean.

 

On the cura topic, I  think it's much easier to setup a profile in cura for the CC0.6 than reprogram it to a 0.4 I've used the CC0.6 on my Ultimaker3 and just changed the line width,  I should find some time to set it up with a proper profile someday..

Ultimaker only provides profiles for officially supported combinations, which is pretty limited, but you can use the CC0.6 perfectly on the Ultimaker 3 , or with many non supported materials.  

The easiest is usually to select a 0.4 profile (with the AA0.4 selected as core) for the material you want to use, and change the line width to 0.6 (or just below 0.6 as Ultimaker would do it), depending on the material and speed you may also need to slightly change the printing temperature and do a few test prints, but usually the 0.4 profile is a pretty good starting point.

 

Be aware that if you want to use the CC0.6 in the Ultimaker 3 , that the feeder is not made for abrasive materials and may wear out. You can solve this f.e. by upgrading to bondtech feeders.
