    That's a tricky print, but a pleasing result, but btw the "Printing Guidelines" link just takes you to the product page now.


    Question: Would this be a good candidate for the BB print core?


    Also, it would be awesome to have a way to leverage the way these kinds of filament react to temperature variations to produce grain effects. You can do that with post-processing but that's just flat layer-by-layer and the end result is an mdf/plywood effect rather than grain.

    I've printed a number of parts using woodfill and copperfil.  I would not try this on a BB core.  Indeed, once you get to 0.4 and below on an AA core, the printer needs to be monitored for clogging.  I do like the results though!


    The way solids are suspended in the filament makes both of them somewhat prone to clogging if your print involves retraction.  I have run them in a hardcore (AA) down to 0.25 nozzle, but that works for short duration prints only, after which I have to do both hot and cold pulls to clear things out.  I'm not sure it would be possible to clear out a BB nozzle without doing harm to it.


    This thread is related, I hope this helps.



     Have fun

    I loaded WoodFill Materials via Cura > Marketplace > Materials

    but Cura Says Profile is not Supported, what is wrong 😏


    That's easy to answer but probably not very satisfying to you.... 😏

    It's the wrong printer and the wrong nozzle size.


    If you install this material from the marketplace you get quality profiles for AA 0.8 print cores. One for each of these printers: Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker 3 extended, Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3


    You can still add one of these four printer models to Cura and have a look at the settings, but that's it.

    It's not (directly) usable for anything else.


    The marketplace website is perhaps more useful for you. There's the list of printers that are supported by this profile and links to the appropriate colorfabb website with general printing advice.

      • 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
