Very new to Cura (and 3d printing in general). Can anyone explain the rational behind the temperature settings in the Materials section? How do those values relate the the temperature settings in the Material profile?

 

I have the Cura settings guide plugin but it just explains the significance the the values.

 

I'm I supposed to create a different Print settings profile for each material?

    When you switch from material A to material B, the "default" printing temperature don't have to be the same...

     

    For example, I print PLA on 210 degrees and TPU on 235 degrees... When I switch material from PLA to TPU the nozzle-temperature changes automatically! I have set both temperatures in the material-setting! The only thing I have to remember is to switch material when I switch filament 😉

    In the materials settings I have set the temperature on that the filament type prints the best on my printer, so for PLA I have set it to 210 and for TPU to 235...

      • 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
