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.
