Our printing profiles

All profiles listed herein, except for PVA / PLA-T, assume that the models do not require supports. If needed, simply activate the option “supports” in the profile, the parameters are already configured in advance.

DO NOT use the default Cura profiles listed in our desktop slicer profile list:

Profile nameDescriptionExtruder(s)
ABS ext1 – 100µm HRA profile for ABS to produce the best detail and quality. The profile assumes that the piece is small and with delicate details, for larger pieces and with not so many details, it is possible to obtain a faster impression by increasing the values ​​of printing speed of the perimeters and the filling.ext1.png
ABS ext1 – 200µm STDProfile for ABS material, with an intermediate quality of details and speed. By default, it does not have supports, if they are needed, simply activate the option “support” and the parameters will be configured.ext1.png
ABS Ext1 – 300µm LRProfile for ABS material (use the extruder on the right, ext1). ABS: strong material, resistant to weathering, easy to post-process. This profile is of fast impression, low resolution, good quality. It is possible to increase the speed of the perimeters and fill a little more to get a faster impression, but at the cost of a little quality.ext1.png
Flex98 ext2 – 100µm HRProfile intended to use Flex98 material, at a very good resolution. Keep in mind that by its nature, flexible materials are not intended to produce pieces of great detail but must be used for practical parts. The previous loading recommendations also apply to this profile.ext2.png
Flex98 ext2 – 200µm STDProfile intended for Flex98 material. It is of medium resolution. The speed in the case of flexible materials is the same in all qualities and it is not recommended to change the preconfigured ones in the profile. Detail to take into account: the manual loading of the flex filament is recommended until extrusion is seen.ext2.png
Flex98 ext2 – 300µm LRFor quick prints with no need for high detail level using Flex 98.ext2.png
HIPS ext1 – 130µm HRA profile that uses the HIPS material as the primary impression material (the other use of HIPS is as a soluble support material for ABS, for example in which case it is used in the extruder 2). Hips is a tough and strong material, soluble in limonene. It has as its attractive characteristic very nice pastel colors but also generates pieces that are resistant to strong impacts and resists physical stress.ext1.png
HIPS ext1 – 200µm STDStandard profile for HIPS.ext1.png
HIPS ext1 – 300µm LRQuick profile for printing HIPS when high detail level is not required. ext1.png
HIPS ext2_ABS ext1 – 120µm HRThis profile uses ABS as the main impression material and HIPS as soluble support material (means that after the piece is printed, it can be immersed in a limonene solution and the HIPS will be dissolved). This profile is for pieces that require a high level of detail.dual.png
Nylon12 ext1 – 100µm HRThis Nylon12 printing profile provides a higher level of softness in the final details.ext1.png
Nylon12 ext1 – 200µm STDThis profile uses the Nylon12 material in the extruder 1 (right). The nylon12 is a version of nylon resistant to moisture, maintaining the characteristics of the strength of nylon. The use of nylon is intended for the production of direct use and is not suitable for models with very delicate details due to the temperature of extrusion and the tendency of nylon to drip. This profile is of medium quality with good printing speed.ext1.png
Nylon12 ext1 – 300µm LRLow-resolution profile for Nylon12 for quick prints.ext1.png
Nylon12 ext1 – SStrong 200µmThis profile uses Nylon12 as the main material but the configuration gives the piece a much greater resistance. If you need to create some piece in nylon, that needs to support big tensions and effort, this is the suitable profile. It consumes a lot more material than the other nylon profiles.ext1.png
Nylon6 ext1 – 100µm HRThis version of the profile of nylon 6 grants greater softness in the finish of the final printed piece. It is important in all nylon6 profiles to ensure that the material is free of moisture.ext1.png
Nylon6 ext1 – 200µm STDThe Nylon6 is an economical version of nylon, which preserves all the qualities of it but is susceptible to moisture. If the model to be printed will not be exposed to the weather, nylon6 is a good option. This profile gives a good level of detail with good printing speed.ext1.png
Nylon6 ext1 – 300µm LRLow-resolution profile for Nylon 6 for quick prints.ext1.png
Pet-g ext1 – 200µm STDThe Petg combines the good qualities of PLA and ABS without the bad qualities. Easy to print, very good mechanical resistance and temperature, the PETG can also be used in contact with food. The recommended is not to use less than 200μm, although it is not impossible to do so. Attractive colors The PETG has a lot of dripping, so it is probably necessary to perform some post-processing after printing.ext1.png
Pet-g ext1 – 300µm LRLow-resolution profile for PETG for quick prints.ext1.png
PLA-T ext1 – 100µm HRPrinting profile for PLA-t that provides the best detail finish.ext1.png
PLA-T ext1 – 150µm HRFThis profile of PLA-T provides an excellent relationship between quality of details and speed of printing.ext1.png
PLA-T ext1 – 150µm STD_whiteSome colors change the characteristics of the filaments a little. This profile is configured to provide a good impression particularly with the white PLA-T filament and also provides a very good relationship between detail quality and printing speed.ext1.png
PLA-T ext1 – 200µm STDThe PLA-tough is a version of the PLA of very good mechanical resistance, superior to other types of PLA. It is used in the extruder on the right (ext1) and this profile gives good levels in the details.ext1.png
PLA-T ext1 – 300µm LRThis profile version for PLA-t gives good quality results but at a high printing speed.ext1.png
PLA+ ext2 – 100µm HRThis profile for PLA + offers an excellent resolution of details on the printed page. The profile assumes that the piece is small and with very fine details, so the speed of printing is low. If you want to print a large object (larger than 10 cm in diameter and height) you can greatly improve the printing speed by increasing the speed parameters of the internal perimeters and the filling).ext2.png
PLA+ ext2 – 150 µm HRFA profile that uses PLA + as the primary impression material. This profile provides an excellent level of detail and speed of printing.ext2.png
PLA+ ext2 – 200µm STDStandard profile for printing PLA+.ext2.png
PLA+ ext2 – 250µm STDFThis profile uses PLA + as the primary material to be used in the extruder 2 (extruder on the left). The PLA + offers very good surface finishes. This profile gives good details with good printing speed. The PLA + can then undergo the “forged” technique to improve its mechanical resistance and temperature.ext2.png
PLA+ ext2 – 300µm LRThis profile for PLA (left extruder) gives a low level of detail, but good finishing and fast speed of final impression.ext2.png
PLA+ ext2_PLA-T ext1 – 100µm HRThis 2-color print profile, like the previous one, uses PLA + (extruder 2 on the left and PLA-T on the extruder 1 on the right). It provides a lot of softness and level in the details.dual.png
PLA+ ext2_PLA-T ext1 – 150µm STD2 color printing profile that yields a very good relationship between detail level and printing speed. Use PLA + on the left extruder (ext1) and PLA-T on the right extruder.dual.png
PLA+ ext2_PLA-T ext1 – 300µm LRThis profile uses PLA + in the extruder on the left and PLA-T in the extruder on the right. It is intended to produce pieces of 2 colors at a low resolution and good printing speed. The profile is generic and it is possible that certain parts require some adjustment of their parameters to produce the perfect results expected.dual.png
PVA ext2_PLA-T ext1 – 100µm HRThis profile will print PLA Tough in high resolution to get the best smoothness/detail while adding support from PVA.dual.png
PVA ext2_PLA-T ext1 – 120µm HRFCertain models require supports in areas where it is impossible to remove them later. For these cases, soluble supports are used. PVA is one of them, it dissolves in water. The piece is then printed using PVA as a support material in the extruder on the left and PLA-T in the extruder on the right. Once the piece is finished, it is submerged in water for a few hours and the PVA dissolves, leaving behind the final piece.dual.png
