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.
