Changing the print temp variably in Cura.

Recommended Posts

I have a wood PLA filament that I heard could change color based on temperature. Is there a way that in Cura 3 that I can variably change the temp throughout the print? Like with a curve or something? If there isn't Ultimaker should seriously consider adding one. I'm using a CR-10 (not sure if that matters).

No.  Just try it.  However it could be quite tedious to put in 30 tweaks at 30 different heights simply changing the nozzle temp on each one.  There used to be a plugin for cura 15.* which you might want to use instead that is designed specifically to change the temp randomly.  I recommend installing cura 15.* and locating that plugin instead. But it will be work - you'll have to learn a new (simpler) cura and locate the right plugin, download the plugin, put it in the right folder.  From that point on it's easy.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
