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


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cannot "ack/force" third-party material (Cura 4.0)
  • 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 😕

    Yes.  Known bug.  This exact issue has been reported to Ultimaker but I'm not sure if it's on their list of things to fix.  Hopefully/probably it is.

    Note that though @gr5 is a gr8 moderator here, he has no such power on the github queue. Only you or Cura developers can close your issue on the github issue queue.

    OK, I leave it to Ghostkeeper who seems to be involved -- at least it looks like I did not posted a redundant entry on github.

      • 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
