why are there 5 hotend temperature variables in cura?

Posted · why are there 5 hotend temperature variables in cura?

so i find it really annoying that there are 5 different hotend settings that have to be set and none of them can even be disabled.

default printing temp

printing temp

printing temp initial layer

initial printing temp

final printing temp

why do these all have to be active? i basically cant change my printing temp without changing all 5 variables which i find just ridiculous. it would be nice if 4 of these can be disabled to help keep things simple. i understand that all these temps can be adjusted for a quicker or more optimal print startup but it just seems so minor benefit and not worth the added complexity it brings. i manage a large print farm and always having to check these temps and adjust things for prints is really annoying.

Most of the complexity comes from the clever heating and cooling cura can do for dual extrusion. I agree there should be more levels of complexity / non-complexity in cura, and a simpler single extrusion profile for UM3.

If you are doing single extruder prints then then some of these are probably ignored. You could set them to 206,207,208,209 and then search through the gcode to verify that they aren't used and then you never have to worry about them again and can hide them. Of course for dual extruder prints these save a TON of time on the nozzle switching.
