Unable to add new materials


Recommended Posts

Posted · Unable to add new materials

Version 4.8. Have not been able to add new materials from marketplace or manually. Have been

manually changing settings for each material type. Cannot call up existing materials in library.

Is there a video or some type of process sheet to use? Looked thru this site  and youtube cant

get material library going.

    Thanks for the reply nallath. I have checked the filament diameter and changed it to 1.75, still

    no luck in adding a filament to the usable material list. Another thing the list does is it make a material in the middle

    dropdown but wont add it to the selectable list. There is a blue star that comes and goes and I cant

    make sense of that either.

    Thank you for this clarification, I was having trouble trying to find the IGUS material I installed to print a bearing. With your information I just added a S3 printer to my list and then I could read the material I installed. I then copied the properties (manually) to the material list for my Ender 3 Pro which uses 1.75 mm filament.

      • 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
