Configuration compatibility problem???


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Configuration compatibility problem???



Although I am not an advanced UM3/Cura user but have made several printouts without serious problems so far. (And also some problematic ones of course...)

Now, I wanted to use a new ABS material called Form Futura TitanX but as soon as I uploaded its technical parameters to Cura v4.6.1 as new material and wanted to slice a model in Cura using this filament before printing, I received an error message:  "Unable to slice with the current material as it is incompatible with the selected machine or configuration."

Together with this blocking, the frame of the material cell in the Prepare Custom window is red.


It is strange because as soon as I modify the print core (in the software) from AA to BB, everything is (almost) okay since the yellow frame shows the inadequate (but usable) position. The Generic ABS is fully compatible. (Pls, see attached screen copies.) If I change the core back to AA and filament back to TitanX then slicing will be blocked again.

I do not know what the hell could be.


The roller and filament loaded into the core 1 (AA) while the core 2 (BB) is empty (I do not need supports for building this part).


Could anyone has any tip what the problem could be?



Thanks in advance,

    Sorry Guys,


    In the meantime I fond the source of the problem above...

    I created the new ABS material as a copy of improper generic material.

    As soon as I created the new material using a previous ABS type, everything went well.


    Sorry for bothering.

      • 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
