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.
