Setting temperature in Cura

Recommended Posts

Since the actual printing temperature has to be set via the control panel on the printer itself, does setting it also in Cura actually do anything as far as the GCode file?

Yes. It should add the heat command to the g-code. In the case of an UM2 you should get a warning saying something like "This wil override machine settings'

So should it actually be changing the temperature setting on my Ultimaker 2 Go? It stays at 210 unless I manually change it on the machine regardless of what I have the Cura/Gcode file set at.

If the GCode flavor is set to reprap then it should overide the setting on the printer, you will have a message when starting the print like nallath said: This will override machine settings.

If the GCode flavor is set to UltiGCode then the temperature settings is taken from the currently set material, it can be customised on the printer directly

The official way recommended for "new users" would be on the machine. That's how I do it also. But different people like different work flow.
