Materials not loading


Recommended Posts

Posted · Materials not loading

I have cura 4.6.1 and I am using it with a MPSM V2. I have protopasta htpla carbon fiber filament, and I found a material profile for it in the marketplace on cura. I downloaded it, but I can't find it in the materials list, and if I try to import it manually, it comes out as custom material. How do I get this to work correctly? Also I apologize if this is a redundant question, but I had no luck finding any info using search. Thanks in advance!

    I really wish that after a minor update they still didnt incorporate a visible warning or message on either the marketplace or the material interface to indicate the issue.


    Here's the issue.  Materials from marketplace only show up for supported printers.  Ultimaker specifically.  Which does support when a 2,.75[?] nozzle is specified. 


    I read about this in some other post...just a two liner.


    Managing your printer and choosing extruder, you can change the filament size  and see the menu appear.   however, since the materials dont match the printer or something like that, it will say not supported.


    So, basically this issue has been an issue for a while, and i guess there is little posts regarding this issue for each material where someone downloaded it from the marketplace.


    Technically you can do a search to see that it was download and what not, got the xml file and maybe use it as a baseline.


    Most of all the profiles I used with protopasta I have to crank the bed to 65+ and nozzle and 230.  I have a creality CR-10s...so II too struggle with a material by material calibration and quite frankly, it has cost me more than the developer got paid to put such a warning,


    Some manager should wrangle up some of the internet  forum posts regarding materials not importing.  Many conversations just say reinstall and thats because they like getting paid for not figuring out what the problem is.  Typical.
