Material profile shows up as Not Supported

Posted · Material profile shows up as Not Supported

I've created a profile for PLA, PETG, ABS, but when I created a profile for Nylon the profile always shows as not supported and refused to give me a quality selection.  I'm not sure why this is. I've tried Versions 4.6 4.7, 4.8. I also can't seem to import a Matterhackers NylonX profile either. Not sure if this has anything bearing on a solution.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone,


i have one problem (I hope i'll describe a problem reasonably - I'm not very good in English)


Question is:

Is there any solution to make my own profile for my own material (which is not a default material type)


I want to make profile for ASA material, from a local manufacturer.

In Cura, I Duplicated "Generic ABS" material and changed it:

Display name: ASA Green

Brand: YYY

Material type: ASA

Set green color

Unlink Material


Then I restarted Cura.


In my printer, I got new material, everything as i wanted (Brand name:YYY/ Material type:ASA /Color:Green)


Problem appeared in Cura


ASA is not default Ultimaker material type I don't have any intent or custom profile for ASA. I can't even make it. Is there any solution?


I understand, ASA is similar to ABS and i can left material type to ABS and everything will work OK (Intent profiles for ABS stay) but with this printer (Ultimaker Pro bundle) work several people and I don't want any shortcuts (ASA is ASA, not ABS 😄 ). We want to have all things cleared.

    I found out that it is the material type that throws cura out. 

    Duplicate the generic ABS profile and change what you need to change, but don't touch the material type. 
    As long as you change the density of your material, it works fine. 

    Yes, you have to load the material as generic abs on ultimaker printers in order to make it work... 


    This way it works fine with custom materials in cura. But I agree with you: This is something that should get fixed.
    Either give us more generic material choices or just let any custom material work.

      • 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
