Cura 2.3 - Change temperature throughout the print

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the temperature at certain layers/heights of the print?


I know there used to be a plugin called TweakAtZ and another called VeryAtHeight but neither are working for me. I'm running Cura 2.1.3 and Cura 2.3 and neither are working in both of them. Could someone confirm that they are still able to use one of these plugins for the latest release and then I can work on getting that fixed my end if I know someone else is able to use it.

Is TweakAtZ still supported in Cura now, as its github was updated 5 months ago, I fear the owner/creator has stopped development.

TweekAtZ 5.1 is included with Cura 2.3 (Production, not Beta)

I used it to tweek the Extruder 0 to 190c at layer 5, and this is what was put in the gcode:


;LAYER:5M106 S137.3G0 X65.806 Y99.748 Z1.2;TweakAtZ V5.1: executed at Layer 5M117 Printing... tw@L   5M104 S190.000000 T0M204 S500


So it looks like its working properly.

Can you tell me where this setting is located? I cant seem to find it.


Never-me mind, I found it after I posted thanks anyways:)

Under Extensions: Post Processing: Modify G-Code -> Add The Script


Also was looking for this...Thanks for posting the path!

Making switch from v15.0.4 - keep going back because I can't find where Tweek @ Z is!

    • "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.
