Setting initial layer build plate temperature in start up gcode

Recommended Posts

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!

    • 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.
