Cura "tweak At Z" not working

Posted · Cura "tweak At Z" not working

I just made the switch to cura 2.3.1 from slic3r, and I'm having trouble getting the settings I need.

With slic3r it was easy to set first layer bed and extruder temps higher, which I need for better adhesion, and lower temps for subsequent layers to prevent curling and other hot extrusion problems. This has worked well for me.

With cura, I found the "tweak at z" settings and was relieved to see that it is still possible to change temps after the first layer. Only problem is, its not working. I've tried several different methods, but the "tweak at z" temps will never manifest. Basically I am only getting the Material Printing Temperature temp setting for the whole print no matter what.

I've checked the G-code and it doesn't show up there at all. The G-code does note the number of "tweak at z" instances, but when I check at the beginning of each layer it never calls for a change to my temps.

Any idea what might be happening?

Im on an i3 clone if it matters, running marlin (not that it would matter since its not showing in the G-code).

Thanks.

      • 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
