Material station

Posted · Material station

Does anyone know if you can select which material location you want to print from on the material station i.e I have 6 different colours/ materials loaded and I want to print from spool C which is red or spool E which is PetG rather than loading the required spool into slot a or removing all other spools Thanks

    The S5 picks the corresponding material itself, i.e. select the material in Cura and everything goes automatically as long as the printer knows there is a difference between the spools. For Ultimaker materials, material types and color is a difference. If you are using third party materials, you usually have no separation between colors, just between material types. In that case the printer will pick that spool of all  spools in question which has been inserted first.

      • 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
