Posted · Changing print bed in Cura for Ultimaker #

Hi,

 

I recently bought an aluminium PEI coated printing bed from clever3d. 
Since i am changing from a glass printing bed to the PEI bed i noticed the specified printing bed in Cura.
I tried to find any configuration in Cura where i could add a printing bed type with a specific configuration (e.g. temperature) for specific materials.

Is it possible to specify a custom printing bed in Cura with it's own dedicated settings or is the only available printing bed "glass"?

AFAIK, development of the feature to support different types of beds was halted when the aluminum bed for the S5 was canceled.

It is testament of how firmly Ultimaker believed the aluminum buildplates would be released.

So have still no reason why they abandoned the aluminium build-plates except the statement that it did not satisfy the companies standards.  I bought a custom PEI coated aluminium plate from clever3d.de and this is really working well. Object (PLA/PVA en TPU) stick perfectly while printing without any preparation for the plate. When cooled down, the object can be taken of the plate without any noticeable force. No warping 😀.

The Aluminium plate from Ultimaker was supposed to be made from anodized Aluminium, not PEI coated Aluminium. Obviously, one works, the other doesn't (in the way and with the lifetime intended).
