How to sync materials with multiple PC's and material station


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to sync materials with multiple PC's and material station

Dear Ultimaker community,


Recently we bought a new s5+ bundle with material station to use in one of our labs. We would like the students to be able to access the printer on their own laptop, which always works fine. However, I'm having some problems with properly syncing the custom materials between printers and multiple laptops.


For example, we use the Colorfabb bronzefill, for which the profile was created on one laptop and synced with the printer from there. A second laptop will then give an error that the material is not recognized by their Cura, making it impossible to use, except when they make their own profile which will create a mess in the database eventually.  

Although this sounds like a problem which could have an easy solution I haven't been able to find it and would like some guidance on this if possible! 


Kind regards,
