Ultimaker Material combination - Material with itself


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Material combination - Material with itself

The Ultimaker Material combination table on this side https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011543699-Ultimaker-S5-Material-compatibility says that only PLA, Tough PLA, ABS and CPE are officially supported in printing them with themselves (e.g. two colours). Why are the other materials (PC, PP, TPU 95, CPE+) set to experimental? If I print a large object, it should be the same like printing a material with itself ... the material has to stick on itself, even when it has already cooled down?

    It is due to a variety of reasons. You can find some more information about each of the reasons on the designated material pages. Here it the page to TPU for example: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011940440-How-to-print-with-Ultimaker-TPU-95A


    It says:

    "Because TPU 95A is prone to oozing, we don’t officially support printing TPU 95A in combination with other materials.".


    PP we only have in neutral, so there is not really a reason to print it dual extrusion. But in any case, I would recommend to check the designated material pages. Here is a link to the overview: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/categories/360002336619-Materials
