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.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
