Table for PLA temperatures

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
