How to set flow value through the material profile?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to set flow value through the material profile?

Hi, all.

I want to add the parameters of the flow to my material profile. But I cannot find the parameters for the xml.fdm_material profile which can allow it.
The reason to do this is that I need different parameters of the material flow for different materials and I want to change it automatically by changing the material.
Who knows how to do it - please let me know. Thanks.

    I believe you can call it as in the definition, but you have to change the syntax of the setting slightly:

    Thank you/ I will try to add it in the material configuration file.

    You can do this using the Material Settings plugin from the Marketplace. Caveat: I still have to update it for Cura 4.4.

    Yes, it works. Thank you.

    But maybe you also know how to add this parameter to the material configuration file? I try to make all settigns through this file.

    The plugin adds it to the (material) configuration file, just like @ZachRose suggests (but with fewer chances of putting it in the wrong place)

    Thanks to all. Now it works perfect.

      • 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
