Material installed in Cura does not match material installed on the printer.

Hello wise guru's


Currently we are using a non-ultimaker material Filkemp's PLA-N (highly recommend) on our printer. 


I have installed the material profile from the marketplace in Cura and that aspect works fine. The material in Cura is called PLA-N 'generic'
However, for some reason on the printer itself the material has installed as PLA-N 'natural' (despite being called PLA-N generic) so every time I send something to print it throws up an error telling me that the material settings are not the same and asking me to override the current profile on the printer.


Is there a way to change the material settings on the printer so that this error is removed? Any other suggestions?


thank you!
