Hi,

 

Materials are a crucial element of a successful 3D printing workflow. For certain applications you just need a specific material up for the task, otherwise it will never hold. Whether that is flame retardant, reinforced composites or wear resistant. 

 

At Ultimaker we know how important this flexibility and freedom of choice is and that is why we started a Material Alliance together with the largest and most relevant material manufacturers. This already consists of over 120 materials and the list is growing every month. Each material has a profile that is tailored to an Ultimaker 3D printer, so you no longer need to trial and error your way to a useful print! 

 

If you're curious if we have a material that matches a particular need you have? Visit our materials page and use the filter to get a clear overview of which materials could be an option for you. 

 

We have also started a series of posts where we explain certain properties more in debt. You may find them interesting to read:

You can also visit this link to get a full list on alphabetical order of all materials we have in our Material Alliance.

Hi SandervG, I have downloaded and installed the 'Filamentive' rPetg material from your marketplace, it shows up in my Cura software 4.8 but when i try to load it to the material station on my S5 i cannot select it from the menu, it has a Red triangle and is greyed out when i tap the triangle it tells me there is an ER64 error. Up until now i have only found that tricking the machine into thinking it is CPE can work, i have also noticed that there is no 'generic' petg option in cura software?

 

Am i doing something wrong?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
