Geeetech A30T not a choice in Cura "add a Printer"?

Posted · Geeetech A30T not a choice in Cura "add a Printer"?

Hello. I recently purchased a Geeetech A30T and want to add it as one of my printers in Cura. It is not listed as an option.Will it be added? Is there a similar printer that is listed that allows printing with three different colors that I should select instead? Thank you.

    The definition is very close to the A20T.  You can add an A20T and change the name on the right side of the "Add" dialog box.  After adding the printer go to "Manage Printers / Machine Settings" and change the build plate size.  I believe the numbers for yours are X320 Y320 Z400.


    The next Cura release may have the Geeetech A30T definition.

    That depends on if someone will contribute a printer definition for it.


    Ultimaker only creates printer definitions for its own printers. All other printer definitions are contributed by 3rd parties; either printer manufacturers, or community members.

      • 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.
