Is it possible to add NFC tags to generic material?

I'd like to add NFC tags to some of the common material I buy.  Ideally I could set it up to be a profile in cura, buy a couple of cheap NFC tags that i label appropriately, and slap them on spools when I load them so my material station knows whats-what.

 

Is it possible to do this?

During a print, I have finish the Ultimaker orange PLA ribbon and I have try to use a general PLA to finish the print, I have take the NFC from original ribbon and I have applied on the Generic ribbon, the printer has finished printing successfully.

The NFC antenna in the tag on Ultimaker materials is quite large. Most tags will not be picked up by the antenna in the spool holder.

The tags are not protected, and can be rewritten. So start with an original Ultimaker tag and try to write it

      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.
