Dual Extruder Temperatures

Recommended Posts

I just installed a second extruder to my printer and have all of the hardware, firmware, and software setup and printing. I used Cura for slicing and have successfully printed my first print. The only real oddity is that the print temperature seems to be all over the place. It appears that Cura is doing auto temperature even though I don't have that set. It changing the temperature of the extruders anywhere from 175C to 210C. I know it's intentional because I see the target temperature changing. Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Thanks!

In Cura you can set the cooldown temperature (i think its called like that (or idle temperature maybe), check how these settings look like for you.

These settings might be hidden, so you have to go in advanced mode, then click on the gear next to the material settings (i think)

    • "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.
