Is it possible to add NFC tags to generic material?

Posted · 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?

    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
