Generic PETG missing from Materials Manager in 5.1


Recommended Posts

Posted · Generic PETG missing from Materials Manager in 5.1

I am new to the Ultimaker - I have an Ultimaker 2+ modified to 1.75mm filament. I am using Cura 5.1


I would like to print using Overture PETG but cannot find any profiles for PETG under materials - generic or otherwise.


Where would I find the generic PETG material profile for Cura and how do I load it so it is an available selection?

    Hey @dk-info,

    Welcome to the community 🚀


    We don't have a material profile for PETG for the Ultimaker 2+, since we released Ultimaker PETG after the Ultimaker 2+ has been discontinued. 

    But if you know which temperatures you have to use, which are often on the packaging or on the website, I suggest to make a New Material based on CPE since that one is most similar. Make sure you type CPE as Material Type for the layerheights to work. After that you can tune the other settings as much as you like (except for changing the diameter of the material)

    Good luck!

    Forgot to mention about the material diameter dissapearing if it's too low

      • 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
