Ultimaker 2 settings hidden in Cura?

Recommended Posts

Why is it settings like retraction speed are not in Cura when U2 is the selected machine? Is there a way to get them back?

Because with a UM2, retraction speed, filament diameter, temperature and whatever other settings that go missing are now set in the printer user interface. This allows you to slice the file once, and then change all those things before - or during - printing.

Seems like a pain at first, but actually it's quite helpful once you get used to it.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
