Activating downloaded bundled materials in Cura

Posted · Activating downloaded bundled materials in Cura

Hello, and moderators: Apologize if this is the wrong section, please modify/edit/move as you see fit.


Quick question: New Cura user and when I go to the marketplace to add materials, there is a whole list of "bundled" materials that are marked installed, however do not show up under my material options in the material tab or as an option to "activate" or "install" under manage my materials.  Example: I am looking to use PolyMax PLA from Polymaker. It is listed under the "installed" tab in the marketplace under "bundled materials" but is not available on my drop down list.  Any ideas as how to open/unlock this? I'd really like to have the option to open some of these materials and read the excellent notes and attributes listed but unfortunately have hit a roadblock.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated!


Thanks again,

    Hi, I discussed this with our product experts, we looked at the files and saw that this material profile is blocked by Creality. Please contact Creality support to understand why this material profile is not compatible. Hope this helps!

    Thank you sir! Yes I added different printers to see what was unlocked, the Ultimaker didn’t list the regular polymaker either but listed the special ones I added from the marketplace. Different machines (Ultimaker included) only allow certain materials to pre-populate it appears. I ended up taking screen shots and will build them in manually as custom filaments. 

    Hope that may help someone else!

      • 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.
