General question about printer to cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · General question about printer to cura

Cura doesn't recognise anything; you have to tell it things.


Also realise that Ultimaker only makes the profiles for Ultimaker printers. All the other printer profiles for 3rd party printers are provided by third parties (sometimes 3d printer manufacturers, but commonly some community member).  Whoever wrote the definition of the Geeetech A30 for Cura defined it as having a maximum of 1 extruder.


Modifying the definition is not entirely straightforward, so it is probably easiest to add a new printer to Cura and choosing the "Custom FFF Printer" option instead of Geeetech A30. Then you can choose the number of extruders (up to 8).

    Thank you very much ahoeben as soon as it is done printing, I will give that a try.

    When i added this printer, it was listed, but must be listed with only one extruder.

    When adding it as FFF, is there anything else that i will need to know? (So I dont screw things up)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
