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.

      • 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.
