Cura material weight settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura material weight settings

Hi

 

Imusing and Ultimaker 2 with Cura 4.4.x but cannot get it show the weight of the model after slicing.

See the attached image.

I have the price and spool weight entered in the printer profile but the rest of the boxes are greyed out. Am I missing something or is this not possible?

The people I work for have a spreadsheet cost calculator that works by weight and not lenght of material used.

 

Any help welcome.

 

Regards

Graeme

Cura can’t show the weight of the model because it does not know what material you will be using on your printer.

 

If you want to be able to select materials in Cura, go to Machine Settings and change the gcode flavor to Marlin.

If I use the Marlin  gcode flavour do I need to change any machine settings?

Other than the gcode flavour, no. The default start gcode should work fine.
