Add CC 0.6 Red Core option for UM3?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Add CC 0.6 Red Core option for UM3?

Hi all, we've recently outfitted our UM3 with the Bondtech hardened feeders and the CC Red 0.6mm Print core with the intent to use BASF PP-GF30 filament.


The main issue is there is no option to select the CC core with an UM3 in Cura 4.8. Is there a way to enable this or a good workaround?


The lesser issue is there is no way to specify this material on the UM3 when loading it, which means you have to navigate through the warnings and override every print in Cura. Is there a way to add new materials to the UM3 material loading screen?

    What you ask would also be great but I assume the reason why they don't do that is that the feeder is not hardened, so printing abrasive materials would slowly wear down the feeder gear. 


    That's also probably why this material cannot be selected with this printer in Cura...


    Unfortunately I don't know any work around... Sorry.

    Hey thanks, this is exactly what I'm looking for, guess I missed it in my searching. How much risk are we talking about here? I'll probably just wait a bit to try it out because our S5 and UM3 are basically running 24/7 right now on some bigger jobs.

      • 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
