Material Station Requests

1. The ability to create our own profiles for the Material Station. I have some MatterHackers Pro nylon that prints great but hangs up when the material is pulled out of the print core at the end of the print. I think all that is wrong is that the core needs to be at a higher temperature. It would be nice to be able to fix this myself. 


2. The ability to disable one of the one of the "inputs" from the Material Station and feed that core directly from a spool on back of the printer. So core #1 would get fed from the Material Station and core #2 would get fed from a roll on the back of the printer. This will be useful when a material is either incompatible with the Material Station, such as ColorFabb Woodfill or some cheap stuff that I'm using to test designs because it is cheap, or when the supplier uses a weird spool size that won't work in the Material Station; taulman3D, I'm talking about you. This will also be useful for filaments such as PVA, which mostly work in the Material Station but sometimes cause problems. 


3. See #2, but better yet, Version 2 of the Material Station lets one of the rolls be outside of the box, but this might be asking too much.

      • 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
