Different print settings in model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Different print settings in model

Today I was wanting to do a stringing test. I loaded up 10 models on the build plate and proceeded to apply different print settings to each. Except I could not find the settings to change retraction amount and speed or temp. Are these just not there or am I not looking in the correct spot?

    It depends... 🙂 Which printer definition is selected?


    Printers of the UM2-series use the material settings that are configured on the printer itself (by default).

    You have to change the GCode-Flavor to "Marlin" if you want to have full control about this with Cura. It's in the Cura machine settings.


    Be aware that there are settings for maximum feedrate. If you want to go higher than 45mm/s for retraction speed you have to increase the maximum allowed value first (printer maintenance menu -> "Motion settings")


    Good luck!

      • 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
