Intent Profiles for more materials


P3D

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?

I agree, Particularly interested. I never use PLA but lots of CPE and Nylon so intent profiles for these would be excellent.

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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • 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
