Cura 4.6, material settings not available


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.6, material settings not available



I am currently running Cura 4.6 and I don't seem to have the ability to edit material settings (print and build plate temperature, etc.). Maybe this is as simple as "your Ultimaker 2 doesn't support those settings" but despite my best efforts, I haven't been able to find a forum or topic that gives me an answer as clear as that. 


More on the issue: the material settings dropdown is there, but when I click to expand, nothing shows up, even though my setting visibility shows several of the default settings checked. 



I also don't have any of the default material profiles, nor can I download and install or create my own material profiles. 



I know I can control print and build plate temp directly through the machine during a print, but it would be nice if I could set this ahead of time in the software and not have to worry about it. If this is due to my UM2 not supporting those functions, is there any workaround? Any suggestions are appreciated.

      • 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
