Cannot "ack/force" third-party material (Cura 4.0)

Recommended Posts

  • Cura 4.0.0-BETA / ubuntu18.04.1 LTS / UM3
  • third party filament (Protopasta CFPLA)
  • print over network

Previously, it complained also about the filament not being recognized (no NFC), but I just had to go and confirm on the Printer itself before it allowed printing.

Now, Cura 4 "monitor" tells about it explicitly "Requires configuration changes", which is a very welcomed addition.
So I thought I could tell it to proceed without having to go and click on the printer. However,

  • clicking on the "Override" button of the popup in the MONITOR panel seems to have no effect at all (no change to the interface nor the printer)
  • worse, I cannot find the option anymore on my printer (IIRC with Cura 0.3.5 the printer only displayed a warning and I just had to confirm to start printing)


  • What I am doing wrong? How shall I proceed to bypass this (zealous) test, in Cura or on the UM3 ?
  • I really wish there was a "global setting" somewhere to avoid warnings about "unknown" materials completely (if it does not know it should not be that annoying imho). I will post a FR in github for the latter.

Now I am back at finding what I need to tell Cura and my printer so it eventually is willing to print 😕

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
