Standard profiles in Cura with Ultimaker 3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Standard profiles in Cura with Ultimaker 3



I have an Ultimaker 3 and I have some troubles with the standard pint profiles (fine, normal, fast) in Cura 4.4.0.

The standard print profiles are not displayed when I connect my Ultimaker via wifi with Cura. Instead, it says 'not supported' (see picture). 

After some searching on Google I found out that there is a fix: the print core of the second extruder is automatically set the BB 04. However, when I manually change it to AA 04, the standard print profiles are there again. This seemed a good (temporary) fix. However, since the actual print core is a BB 04, when I change it to AA 04, I am not able to print with supports (which uses the second extruder) and the Ultimaker displays a warning that I did not select the right print core. 


Is there a solution in which I can use the standard print profiles and print with both extruders?

    I guess the reason for it is, that you have loaded the BB 0.4 Printcore together with the BreakAway material. 

    The BB Printcore is just for PVA and not for support material general. So if you want to use BreakAway you have to use the AA 0.4 core.
