Material type under UM S3


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Material type under UM S3



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?

    Is it this material?



    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)

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
