Changing filament diameter settings, UM2

Posted · Changing filament diameter settings, UM2

Hello Everyone

Had my Ultimaker 2 for a week now and I'm loving it. So much advice on this forum.

I'm testing a few filaments on my machine at the moment and keep coming across information about how important filament diameter is.

What I can't seem to find is how I adjust this setting on the printer. The only workaround I can find is to create a custom profile for the material instead of editing the existing settings for PLA & ABS.

Am I missing a trick

Thanks in Advance

    You can change the diameter in the PLA setting on the UM2 and Save the profile or am i wrong?

    Note that filaments that are 3mm and tend to be more than 3mm could cause more friction in the bowden and lead to underextrusion

    Can't seem to find any setting to amend PLA or ABS settings. It only allows me to change between PLA & ABS.

    There should be a third option 'Customize'...

     

    This option only lets me create a new pre-set which is named Custom#1. This can then not be edited or deleted unless a factory reset is performed. All the PLA & ABS settings seem to be locked.

      • 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
