Hi guys

I recently got to work on a UM S5.

For tuning in new material i need to print temp-towers.

Those usually (in the old Ultimaker2 days) have been gcode-edited to have different Temps for a given set of layers.

i remember doing this on Gcode-files but am unable to do the same to the new Ultimaker file format .ufp

its not text-editable and i am no programming nerd 🙂

 

Is there a setting or a plugin i miss in cura to achieve said Temp-towers?

 

Tanks in advance for any help.

    UFP files are essentially zip containers. These containers just have a gcode file inside them. Assuming you are on windows, you can just change the extension to zip, change the g-code and zip it again.

    The S5 will also accept gcode as normal. So you can also just save it as g-code from Cura and then use a thumbdrive to move the file over to the S5 to be printed.
