Posted · Loading Nylon X Material Station



How do I get the material station to recognize Nylon X is loaded?


I have the Nylon X loaded from the Cura marketplace and set up. When I go to load the spool in the material station there is no way to choose Nylon X. Is there a way to get Nylon X or other 3rd party material to be loaded properly in the material station?


I'm printing from the USB, not over wifi.

    If you want to use a material the profile of which does not support the Material Station, you have to use a generic profile such as the PA GFF in this case. Be aware that it is not uncommon that this way fails at unloading the material.
    Personally, I usually switch the printer off, disconnect the Material Station for such materials and put the spool holder back in, then reboot the printer so it starts as a standalone S5.

    Of course it does not hurt (hopefully) if you contact the manufacturer and ask if making the profile compatible with the Material Station is planned.
