Ultimaker Pro will not see new materials

Posted · Ultimaker Pro will not see new materials

Hi Folks,


I'm ready to throw this machine into the dumpster and desperatelty need help. I am unable to get my machine to recognize new materials. I have switched to BASF ABS and BASF CF, on the recomendation of Ultimaker, and the Ultimaker refuses to see these materials. I did see them for a brief period of time but since software and firmware upgrades i have had no luck. 

-Yes i uploaded new materials software.

-Yes i have turned the machine on and off.

-Yes i have updated all firmware and software too many times to count.

-Yes all material feeding tubes are unclogged etc.

-This machine has about 400 hours on it.

-Does anyone want to buy a slightly used Ultimaker Pro? 🙂

    Hey @scottjkolb,


    Personally I like the troubleshooting steps described on this support page. 

    I checked the Ultimaker Marketplace and I did not see the specific BASF ABS and BASF CF you describe. 


    Did you download the materials from the marketplace or did you create the custom materials yourself?
