Temperature not set


Recommended Posts

Posted · Temperature not set


I have an Untimaker 2 Extended, and I'm using Cura for slicing. As we know, temperature in this machine is material dependent, so when we change material we set the temperature for that material. I'm only using PLA, so I never change the settings.

The problem is that in some prints, the printer remembers this temperature, and some times doesn't. I have not found a pattern, but I even think that sometimes with the same gcode has done it or not.

So, sometimes when I go to print the temperature is at 210, but others (ultimately almost all the times) I have to change the temperature. And for going from 0 to 210 you have to tirn the wheel a lot of times. :(

Any ideas?

    It's bad for PLA and especially ABS to sit at full temperature for a few minutes - it can cause clogging as the material is slowly baked into a gum.  For PLA it can be at full temperature for longer - maybe 10 mintues or 30 minutes.  For ABS even one minute might be too much.

    Because of this, the UM2 heats up the bed first.  Only when the bed is close to final temperature does the nozzle start heating up.  So if you just wait a little longer you will see the nozzle "goal" temp suddenly change to 210C.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
