Monoprice Maker Ultimate/Wanhao Duplicator 6

  • Has anyone gotten the subject printers to work with MatterControl?

    I'm having little/no luck with such. MC refused to even talk to the printer until I told it the printer was a Ultimaker 2. The printer prints, but the output is not close to being correct.

    Thanks in advance,

  • So, I'm guessing no one has gotten it working either.

    Too bad

  • I was hoping another user would be able to comment, since we do not have this printer here in the office. From a little Googling, it looks like the printer is G-Code-compatible, so it should work with MatterControl, even though MC does not have a pre-configured profile ready to go.

    To get started, you'll need to create a new printer using the 'Other -> Other' option during the printer setup wizard, then obtain specifications from the manufacturer and input them into MatterControl under SETTINGS -> Printer as well as a few under SETTINGS -> Filament. Check this list for the minimum settings you should configure:

    Here's a link to our Getting started guide for reference:

    I'll add the printer to our list of requested models for support for MatterControl.

  • Hey Ryan,

    Thanks. I'll give it a try and report back.



  • Hey Ryan,

    Sorry to be so long in replying. I got it to work by importing a configuration I saved in the version of Cura supplied with the machine.

    Thanks for the help and MatterControl!.

  • Glad to hear it-- thanks for letting us know!
