Material type under UM S3

Hello,

 

I installed the material profile "extrudr Biofusion" via the Maketplace in Cura (4.12.1). Under Material Type "Biofusion" appears. Under UM S5 I can then also create a print file. With the UM S3 this does not work, it's blocked by Cura - I first have to change the material type in "PLA" (in capital letters!!!).

Why is that? What's behind it? How can I know such a thing?

 

Ingo

    Is it this material?

    https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/materials/extrudr/Extrudr_BioFusion

     

    The list of "Compatible printers" has only one entry: "Ultimaker S5"...

     

    I guess Extrudr has not added printing profiles for the S3 (yet). This would explain the behavior.

    I've already noticed that. Since UM S5 and UM S3 have the same firmware/Printcore, I have already added the UM S3 (in <maschine>)to the profile, because otherwise the profile would not appear in the printer.


    The strange behavior, however, is the need for renaming, which I do not understand.

    They do, but they don't have the same profiles because they require different settings (the sizes of the machine are different, so they often need different settings to get the same good result)

      • 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
