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!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
