Table for PLA temperatures


Recommended Posts

Posted · Table for PLA temperatures

When I saw this from @gr5 :

Print slower and hotter! Here are top recommended speeds for .2mm layers (twice as fast for .1mm layers):

20mm/sec at 200C

30mm/sec at 210C

40mm/sec at 225C

50mm/sec at 240C

I decided to throw this data in an excel file so I could figure out the temperatures for the other layer heights.

This is what I came up with


Great reference for me personally as a beginner. :)

If you see any errors, let me know!

I print .2 at 50mm/s at 230 no problems, not 240. But it depends on the brand. I can't get away with printing under 200 for a lot of suff even at 0.06 and at 30mm/s maybe my sensor is overcompensation or what but that clicking happens and its a no.

0.1 and .2 are just too low res for me, but a chart of high res temps would be interesting.....

like 0.04 @ 20, 30,40,50mm/s 0.06 @ 20,30,40,50mm/a .0.8......

I may do one, but from what i've seen i'm running a lot hotter than most folk on the same layer heights so i'm often told i'm printing too hot.
