Color Pallet


Recommended Posts

The ability to preset most of the critical aspects  of a print job based upon the particular filament being used is managed beautifully by the Ultimaker Cura Slicer, however,

I must say that I am disappointed with the "pallet" option to select a filament color within the "manage materials" drop down menu. It is tedious to look up a #hex to provide the desired hue sought.

It would be nice to incorporate a larger set of basic colors along with a custom color-slider.


Just saying...

    Hey @TinkerMaker,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    This looks like a feature request I've seen before. It's been reported here on GitHub.

    We used to have this functionality but we were not able to migrate it when we upgraded our QT library to QT6.

    I'm curious 🤔 How often are you creating new materials? 
    Why is this feature important for you?

      • 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
