Add material in Ultimaker Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Add material in Ultimaker Cura

Dear All, 

This is my firts post in this community.

I am working with Cura 4.6 and I cannot load a Material or even create a material. I know there are some buttons that you can create or activate a material but for some reason these buttons are deactivated and it doesnt allows me to click on them.

Find in the picture attached. How can I activate these buttons (red circle) or how can I add a material?

Thank you for your help.

    That is because you have an Ultimaker 2. With the UM2, the idea is that you select the material on the printer, not in Cura.

     

    If you want Cura to override what material is selected on the printer, and thus select materials in Cura, go to the Printers pane of the preferences, press Machine Settings, and change the G-Code flavor to Marlin (instead of Ultimaker 2).

      • 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
