Posted · BASF PET CF15 & Material Station

I'm stuggling to get the Material Station on my S5 to allow me to use the BASF PET CF15 material. I have installed the profile for it from the Marketplace but it isn't showing up in the materials list when i try and install a spool of the material.

 

I've got the CC0.6 nozzle so all good on that front, just can't get the material loaded to no profile appearing on the actual printer.

 

Any help would be great.

    I have exactly the same problem. The one I have is the BASF PAHT CF15. I have installed other materials from marketplace, and they work perfectly fine, but this never appears in the list of the printer. I have tried to install it manually from USB, but still no success.

    The printer doesn’t let me override it; thus, as substitute, I’m using the “Generic CFF PA”, with some adjustments.

    So in theory there are 3 ways (that I know of) to get the material onto your S5 but one or two of those mehtods doesn't work.

    1) Print through DF and it transfers (this does not work yet - future feature as of july 2021)

    2) Print over network (you don't even have to print - just discover the printer in Cura through the network and it immediately does the transfer).  This is best way.

    3) Print over USB (Cura has been putting material info into the UFP file for a while now - but only in the absolute latest firmware (version 6.5) does the S5 read this information and store it.  I think it reads ALL the UFP files off the USB as soon as you plug it in and checks for new materials.

     

    Hopefully you have your computer with Cura and your printer on the same network so you can do #2

    But you don't need to do any of this to print.  Just tell the printer you have generic nylon filament and the material station will heat things to the appropriate temperatures.  And if the printer complains that you have the wrong material loaded you just hit "ignore" (or something similar).
