Selecting the Material

I feel like I'm being an idiot by asking this but...

I'm trying to use a non- Ultimaker material. I found a profile for it in Cura and thought I sent it to the printer.  When I go to Select the Material in the load process it's not there. Only the Generics are there.  What am I missing?

 

Thanks

    I usualy select a material with the same printing temperature, I don't think the printer uses the material selection on the printer for anything else as loading and unloading the material (all other settings are in your sliced file)

    Thanks for your response dsp.

     

    That's what I've been doing too, but I have to do an "Override" every time I start a print.  And in the documentation I've reviewed, it indicates that I ought to be able to sync the materials in Cura with the UM3. Thus, I was trying to figure out why I can't get that to work.

    perhaps its the printer because with the S5 we have the option to synch to the printer

    Ultimaker wouldn't make it so my "old UM3" won't support materials syncing... would they?????😝

    I have this exact same problem on my Ultimaker 3. There is no "Sync" option on my Cura version 5.3.1. I am running Ultimaker PLA filament but have to over-ride the Generic PLA that never seems to leave.

      • 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
