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!

    • "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.
