Material settings for different custom printers in Cura 4.11


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material settings for different custom printers in Cura 4.11

Hi to all


Maybe the subject have been already discussed, but I haven't found an answer yet.


Here's my question :

I have different type of printers : Ultimaker 3 Extended, Ultimaker S5, BCN3D Epsilon W50 and custom based on RRF (Duet3D)

I am currently using Cura 4.11 as a single slicer for all those printers, sharing the material database together and benefiting from the plugins and latests releases. (For those who are interested in how to use standard Cura for BCN3D IDEX, please PM me.)


Material parameters like Temperatures, Retraction settings, cooling have to be personalized per printer type.

For the Ultimaker family, it's well done and you have a set of parameter for the UM3X and for S5.


Is it the same for the custom defined printers ? Are these parameters individualized per machine ?


I ask the question because all the print profiles for custom defined printers are available when a custom printer is activated.

Thanks for your feedback !
