Custom material profile for material station


Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom material profile for material station

Hello,

 

The company I work for bought an Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle and one of our partners wants parts out of PVDF, polycarbonate, and XSTRAND. Polycarbonate should be easy enough, but both my custom profiles and profiles from the marketplace don't allow me to use the material station. I could trick the machine and say it's ABS then change all of the settings, but multiple users run this machine and I'd rather keep this from getting confusing. I tried making material profiles in Notepad++ which resulted in Cura telling me everything was corrupt and that I did a bad job. Has anyone had any luck making totally custom material profiles for the material station? If so, how did you do it?

 

Thank you,

Rylan L.

    Hi

     

    I suspect that the gotcha is the magic many digits long "random" ID number. There is a thread somewhere here on just how to generate it correctly.
