Cura and Ulticontroller - Temperature?

Recommended Posts

I print at the "usual" 210 degrees Celsius. Lately i noticed, that the Cura Print Dialog shows me a temperature of 213 degrees for the whole print while the Ulticontroller shows me 210.

Cura 08.12

I think, before using the Ulticontroller, Cura did show the correct temperature.

Cura (and Ulticontroller) still show the temperature when heating (rising), but Cura stays at the slightly overshot temperature while the Ulticontroller updates the temperature.

Anybody seen similar?

I didn't know where to put this topic, as it involves Cura, Ulticontroller and possible Firmware (i run the stock one with my Ultimaker)

Cura shows the last temperature at the time just before it starts printing, the PID that controls the temperature hasn't really stabilized at that point yet. So there is still a bit of an offset at that point in time. The UltiController keeps updating the temperature during printing, so it will show the actual printing temperature.

(I'm working on an update that keeps requesting the temperature even during printing, but I need to be sure not to disrupt the printing process itself)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
