Why can't I print soft materials with a CC core??

Be glad.

Because experience shows that print heads clog faster when you print everything with them.
For example, if you roast PLA residue at 260 degrees in the print head, you will get carbon residue.Cleaning a normal printhead is no fun. Cleaning a CC even less.

Practically, however, it is simply that there are no corresponding profiles for the CC.
After all, the CC is only an alternative for abrasive materials and not a magic bullet for everything. The costs three times more than normal but has no advantages with normal materials. I guess in comparison, the CC would even perform worse than an AA.

But you can get around that.For example, you can reprogram the print heads on the printer.

If I need the CC for materials that don't have a profile for the CC, I hack a another CC profile.
For example, you can print other materials with the Generic profile PA-CF. You just have to set everything yourself.

That is also the problem somewhere. The print settings are not transferable and can differ. I often have a batch of 10 to 20 test parts until the print settings are right. The difference between the cores is especially noticeable in technical parts.Denn Gerade bei technischen Teilen merkt man den Unterschied der Kerne deutlich.


Many greetings

      • 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
