Max Bed Temperature Limit Changed (Lowered) after Extrusion Kit Upgrade Firmware was installed on UM2

Recommended Posts

Hi, after upgrading to the "Plus" extrusion upgrade and going through the firmware upgrade for the printer, it has lowered my maximum bed temperature to 100C. Is there a way that I can get back to using 105C again?

Why 105C?

I found that printing with Polycarbonate is easy, if I set the bed temperature to 105C. With a bed temperature limit of 100C now, I cannot get good adhesion with detailed prints.

The GCODE generated does have the setting at 105C, but the printer appears to be taking all settings greater than 100C and making it 100C. If I try to set with TUNE, the max setting is now 100C as well.

I really want to be able to continue to print with polycarbonate, is there a way to override the printer bed maximum settings?

    • "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.
