High temperature print head-remove 260 degree lock

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · High temperature print head-remove 260 degree lock


I need support from you guys, please!

I need to figure out how to increase printhead temp above to 260 centigrade. I know this limit is for safety reasons.

The max temp i need is 280 degree for printhead and 120 degree for heated bed.

I already have reinforced PTFE coupler (high grade material reinforced with fiber glass, wich is suposed to suport 280 degree without problem), and a silicone 120 watt 220 Volt heated bed with solid state relay.

in configuration.h if i modify temp values nothing happen, the temp for nozzle doesn't rise above 260 and for bed 105 degree.

#define HEATER_0_MAXTEMP 275

#define HEATER_1_MAXTEMP 275

#define HEATER_2_MAXTEMP 275

#define BED_MAXTEMP 130

I know the software measure curent and doesn't allow the nozzle heat above 260 degree ,same algaritm for bed.

Please help me, now i use ultimaker 2 jar jar wich let me to print in 265 degree for printhead and 115 for bed.

I need 280 degree for head and 120 degree for heated bed

Thank You for your support!

      • 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
