Cura issue with XT-CF20 and Solex Hardcore


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura issue with XT-CF20 and Solex Hardcore

I have a UM3E and a Solex Hardcore 0.4 steel nozzle printing XT-CF20 using a recipe I found somewhere in this forum. It prints beautifully! However when I send a print to the printer it complains that the material is not compatible with the Hardcore and every time I have to manually override the error to get it to print. The print core is set to AA 0.4 and the profile is custom for the XT-CF20. The material on the printer is set to nylon. I must have set something wrong?

    It's pretty safe to assume that everything you put on an Ultimaker printer which is not from Ultimaker or one of the materials partners will also throw that error in future if you have your self-made material profile in Cura. But isn't that a relatively small price to pay for the freedom of being able to print any 2.85mm filament with temperature up to 280°C?

    Btw. be aware that regular usage of XT CF-20 in the Ultimaker 3 will also wear down the feeder.

    I purchased a spare feeder for exactly this reason. As long as there isn't something I am missing then I guess I can live with it the way it works (as long as I remember to override the error instead of blankly staring at the printer wondering why it isn't printing...)
