Add materials to new machine


Recommended Posts

Posted · Add materials to new machine

I'm setting up a new machine and want to add new materials so they are visible from the material pull-down menu. I've set up definition, extruder, and quality profiles for the new machine.  The new material files which I created are visible from other machines (example Ultimaker S5) but not the new machine I created. Anything I'm missing?

    Without giving more information, all i can say is "probably".


    Do you have a repository of some kind for these files? I could have a look at them.

        <hotend id="my_exturder_name">
            <setting key="hardware compatible">yes</setting>
