Changing Bed Temperature During Print 2+

Recommended Posts

Hi

I understand the Ultimaker 2+ has the bed temperature set on the machine. Does this mean you can no longer change bed temperature during a print? I have just replaced my Original with a 2+. I have a stack of ABS that I want to use up. After many months of experimenting I found that I needed to start with a bed temperature of 110 to get a good stick onto Kapton but could reduce to 85 after the first few layers.

Regards

Ian

Yes for sure you can, but you need to inconveniently go through the menu's.

Things are soooo much easier if you just use the @tinkergnome firmware.

Your main settings always show directly in the display, and you can directly adjust from there.

you can simply install the firmware using old (15.xx) cura

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
