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 !

      • 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
