Ultrafuse 316L profile doesnt generate a shrinkage plate

Posted · Ultrafuse 316L profile doesnt generate a shrinkage plate

Hi,

I wanna print with my Ultimaker S5 metal objects. I buyed 1 spool of Ultrafuse 316L and the metal expansion kit.

When i slice the objects with Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Cura generate a shrinkage plate.

But when i slice the same object with Ultrafuse 316L it only generates a little standard raft. 

I've already uninstalled and reinstalled the profile, but it didn't help.

The bigger shrinkage plate is not only necessary for 17-4 PH, is it?

How do I get the shrinkage plate to work with the other material?

I can't change the number with the default raft settings.

Only the height, but that only generates a track with the desired height.

    Hey @fabianholzer_listgc,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🚀


    So cool that you are trying to print with metal! 
    If I'm honest I don't know the differences between slicing for 316L and 17-4PH.
    I'll have to ask around 💪

    Do you have the support material, and core that you need for this raft or do you intent to print single extrusion?

    Hey @fabianholzer_listgc,

     

    I doublechecked 316L does not come with our Metal Pack, and Cura does not support dual extrusion with this material. 
    If you disable your second extruder, your printer will just print a skirt, no shrinkage plate. 
    You'll have to print your shrinkage plate seperately and include it in your box to be attached by the Debinding and Sintering staff.

    Good luck with your metal print 💪

    I'm super curious how it turns out, the boat looks so cute.

    Hi, 

    Yes, i have the support material and the DD and CC cores from the metal expansion kit and wanna print with them. I buyed the 316L separately boefore the metal expansion kit released. 

     

    That would be nice if you can ask the differences of the two profiles. If there is not much difference, i just try the 17-4PH profile for the 316L material. So i could use the support material and the shrinkage plate with my ~€500 expensive spool.

    I cant understand why Ultimaker do not allow to print with 316L and Support Material.

    Hey @fabianholzer_listgc,

     

    I got confirmation from our friends at BASF. 
    You can interchange the two different metals and keep everything else the same.

    So you can use the settings from 17-4 PH but load 316L in your printer, and you should get the same results. 

    So you can finish your spool 316L. 🎉
     

    Apologies for any confusion and happy metal printing!
