Setting initial layer build plate temperature in start up gcode

Posted (edited) · Setting initial layer build plate temperature in start up gcode

I have the Prusa i3 Mk2S. In the Cura profile for the machine it has the lines:

M140 S{material_bed_temperature} ; set bed temp

M190 S{material_bed_temperature} ; wait for bed temp

Does anybody know the variable name to put into the start gcode so that it set it for the initial layer build plate temperature?  So far my searches haven't been fruitful. I already tired material_bed_temperature_initial and material_bed_temperature_initial_layer. If anybody knows a list of the variables that would be greatly appreciated!

    All the variables are in [cura application folder]/resources/definitions/fdmprinter.def.json, though that is not a simple list.

      • 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
