Intent Profiles for more materials

Recommended Posts

Posted · Intent Profiles for more materials

Hi, the intent profiles have been quite a game-changer for us, since we have profiles for Tough PLA that reliably produce accurate parts, our S5 is getting more usage than ever.


Now, Tough PLA is a good material - until there are special requirements, such as high temperature or chemical resistance.


So we'd love profiles - especially for CPE and Nylon, in our case. Is there any timeline on when additional intent profiles will be released? Will they be released as part of a Cura Update, or will the material profiles be updated seperately?

What is an "Intent Profile", and how does it differ from the standard profiles?  I use almost exclusively CPE in my production work, so better profiles interests me alot.

    Here's a blog I wrote about them https://ultimaker.com/learn/intent-profiles-ultimaker-cura-4-4


    At the time of writing, they are supported by Ultimaker S5/S3 printers when used with (Tough) PLA and ABS and support materials. So this thread exists to gather interest about which materials you'd like to see this applied to next.
