Need custom flow rate added to material settings

Flow rate for filament needs to be added to the:

 

Preferences - Materials - Information section

 

This would help immensely!!!!!!!! I conduct a flow test for every spool of filament and it would be amazing if I could put that flow calibration result in the material section so I do not have to manually adjust the print settings each time I change a roll.

 

Seriously.... You have a preferred print temp  and bed temp selection that gets transferred to print settings.

If you go to the market place in Cura, you will find a plugin called "Material settings" this add's extra print settings to the materials list.

Thanks for the find. Was looking for just this thing as only 1 of my filament seems to over extrude. I've measured and set it like all my other filaments. But I guess it's the small price to pay for getting a random filament from somebody. Thanks

      • 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
