Making custom materials settings stick in printer?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Making custom materials settings stick in printer?

hi guys, is there a way to make the custom profile added to the printer via SDcard (material.txt) stick so it isnt lost on reboot?

 

I work in a university and i have to do this every single day and its driving me mad, often you forget when its like 7am and then you lose the print due to bed adhesion temperature being way off, so then its stop the machine, remove the bed, clean it off etc etc, its tedious... i need to have a higher bed temperature for ABS.

 

There must surely be a way to get a custom material to stick in ROM? i am unable to connect the machine to a computer to run via USB due to its location. The machine is a UM 2+E.


Anyone got any updates for this to save my sanity?

Cheers!

    Strange behaviour, I never used it personally, I prefer to use Cura to manage the materials (gcode flavour Marlin) but there should be no reason to reload it everytime after a reboot. 

     

    Maybe someone else has an idea.....

    I just found an old bug which causes exactly your behavior. 
    So please update your firmware, this should fix the issue.

    Is there a change log for firmwares, I can't seem to find any?

    Theoretically yes, but I haven't found them in a quick search.

    But the UM2(+) firmware hasn't been updated in a long time, so 3.3 is the most recent official release which came with Cura 3.x (don't know the exact version).

     

    The firmware images are included in Cura, so you don't need to download them separately, just do the update from Cura and you should be fine.

    Cheers Smithy, the update to 3.3 did indeed fix the problem, the custom material now holds after a reboot. Thanks loads!
