Changing Bed Temperature During Print 2+

Recommended Posts

Posted · Changing Bed Temperature During Print 2+


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.

    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

    Yes, exact same gcode works as on UMO for controlling bed temp.
