Cura is not sending marketplace materials to my S3

Posted · Cura is not sending marketplace materials to my S3

Hello,

 

Here at work we just got an Ultimaker S3. It is working great with Ultimaker brand materials but the real reason we got the printer is to use BASF Ultrafuse 316L material. I've downloaded the material profile from the marketplace and it is showing up in Cura but it is not an option on the printer itself. I understand that Cura is supposed to automatically add materials to the printer but it does not seem to be working.

 

The printer is connected through the cloud and I have tried powering off and on the printer and the computer several times. I've also reinstalled Cura on the computer (clean install, all files were deleted).

 

I can't find any more info in other threads, any help would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks

    That's a metal filled filament.  I'm not sure but is it possible that can only be printed with a CC 0.6 core?  Probably not just the CC 0.6 but... if so then that would explain it?

     

    Also you don't absolutely have to get the filament onto the printer software to load it and use the filament.  Just tell the S3 you are loading ABS (to get the right approximate temperature) and then when you go to print it, the printer will complain it's the wrong material and just tell the printer to ignore that.  It should print with the cura settings and ignore the fact that you told it you have ABS.

     

    I agree however that it's nice to get the printer to know the material.
