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.
