Settings template for printing with concrete

Hello

 

I would like to know if there are any settings templates for Cura that allow you to generate a G-code for printing with concrete, taking into account the characteristics of this material (density, viscosity, etc.)?

 

If there are no such templates, then what settings do I need to pay attention to when setting up slicing?

 

Thank you

    I think @LePaul may have printed with concrete.  He works for a university and has printed a full scale boat I think?  But maybe that was metal?  I forget - I have vague memories.  But he has certainly done some major cura hacks. 

     

    He hasn't posted here in a year but I can get you his email if you want.  But try direct messaging him.  He might get that as an email.  Click on his name and go to his profile and message him directly.  I've met him in person and we are facebook friends.

     

    If you do create a profile and/or machine profile it would be nice if you could submit it to the cura team for addition to the printers in the cura list.

    Thanks for thinking of me!

     

    No concrete experience, everything we do is polymers.

     

    Our 3D Printed Boat in 2019 was printed in CF-ABS

     

    We just completed a 3D Printed House using bio materials (wood pla variant)

    In the Concepting Lab I manage, we have 7 Ultimaker S5's, 2 Modix 120X's and we're assembling an modifying a Voron 2.4.  My "hobby'  turned into a full time job.  (Better budget too!)

      • 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
