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

    • "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.
