Create my own custom brand?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Create my own custom brand?

hi guys.

Ive been driven daft by the following.
We have an S5 with material station. We rarely (never) use material with NFC chips in.

So to load in multiple spools of "generic" PLA and have it correspond to actual materials in Cura i have been changing the GUID of new cura profiles to have "Generic PLA Yellow", "Generic PLA blue" etc and they all reside under the "Generic" material on the S5 list.

Its annoying but ok. What i really want is to create my own material "Brand" that shows up on the S5 and i can have it correspond to the materials in Cura. I cant for the life of me work out how to create my own brand. I do it in Cura, change the GUID of the materials within it, export it, remove it. Reimport it, but it just wont show as a new brand on the actual machine.

Is what im trying to do actually possible? I swear ive seen it happen when i was messing around previously.

      • 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
