Need help to Remove Custom Material Profiles created with filament type "PLA+"


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Need help to Remove Custom Material Profiles created with filament type "PLA+"

In my ignorance/innocence, I typed "PLA+" as the filament type, when uing Duplicate to create four custom material profiles.


Now, those profiles do appear in the Manage Materials window, but if I select one, Cura identifies it as "Not Supported", turns the "Prepare" view's Material field orange and defaults the Print Profile selection to "Not Supported".  This also hides all of my custom print profiles from that printer profile pull-down select widget.


When I try to Remove those PLA+ material profiles in the Manage Materials window, the Remove button is greyed-out.

 Is there a manual edit I can make to a Local or Roaming data file, or will you need to modify the software to resolve this?


PS: If indeed Cura does care what Filament Type is entered, it would be nice if Cura gave a pull down list instead of a blank field for this entry...

    You cannot remove the material if it is currently active in any of the printers you have added to Cura. So make sure you have activated a different material. You also cannot edit or remove materials that are in readonly parts of your OS, such as the Program Files. There is a "materials" folder in the Configuration folder that is more appropriate for custom materials. See help -> Show configuration folder.

      • 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
