no PVA to select

Recommended Posts

Posted · no PVA to select

So I have an Ultimaker 2 Extended Plus with the Mark2 conversion. So I have dual extruders.

In the new Cura 4.5.0, I am in the "Prepare" screen and have my "Mark2 for Ultimaker2" selection chosen as my printer. In my material choices, I can NOT find PVA anywhere. When I go to "Add more materials from Marketplace" to try and add it it sais Ultimaker PVA is already installed? 

Is it because I do not have an Ultimaker 3 or better chosen as my printer that it will not allow me to have PVA in my list of available materials? And if so, How can I change this, as we all know the Mark2 can print with it?

 

I didn't know if this should go in the Materials section or the Add on section so I just picked one. Hopefully it's the right one.  ; )

 

Thank you,

- Jason

The technical reason is easy:

The Mark2 definition inherits from the regular Ultimaker2 plus definition - and Ultimaker has a whole bunch of materials excluded for the latter. See:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/master/resources/definitions/ultimaker2_plus.def.json#L16

 

If you want to experiment - copy the marked line from the Ultimaker2 to the "Mark2"- json-file and define your own list. Essentially: overwrite the list with a shorter (or even empty?) list.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
