Material profiles nearly useless (UM3E)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Material profiles nearly useless (UM3E)

Hi,

I recently added a new material profile to Cura. So far so good ... now the printer refuses to start a print when I use that profile, Cura shows a dialog to "overwrite" the configuration. Clicking that button has no effect. The printer shows a dialog on its display to overwrite the configuration, clicking on OK has no effect. The only thing that works is to open the printers web page and apply the configuration change there.

Why does only 1 of 3 possibilities to overwrite the configuration work?
Why do I even need to accept the configuration change ... when I load the material I select PLA, the material profile says its PLA -> why not just start printing?

 

My environment:
Cura 3.6.0
Ultimaker 3 Extended (Firmware: 4.3.3.20180529)

Yep. That cura behaviour annoys me ever since cura 2. It's even so that a different color of pla forces you to override. And indeed having to go to the webpage for the override is super confusing. The interface is a bit better in cura 4 but it's still a big annoyance.

 

Looking at the fact it's a years old issue you probably have to live with it....
