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

      • 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
