Temperature settings not respected in startup GCode

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to print using the ABS/Fine profile, using Cura 3.1.0.  The profile has

Default Printing Temperature: 230

Printing Temperature: 230

Printing Temperature Initial Layer: 230

Initial Printing Temperature: 220

 

I have a custom printer defined, and my startup gcode contains the following line (I put all the temperatures I could think of in the comment just to see what they were):

M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} T0; {material_print_temperature} {material_print_temperature_layer_0} {material_initial_print_temperature}  

When I generate the GCode, it results in:

M109 S210 T0; 210 210 200 

These don't match my settings.   Changing any of the temperatures has no effect on this line - it's always the same.    Only the material temperatures are affected - {material_bed_temperature} and {material_bed_temperature_layer_0} follow the settings as expected.

 

Am I missing a setting somewhere, or is this a bug?  If so, any idea of a workaround besides defining a new printer with the temperatures hardcoded?

 

Thanks,

/Frank

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      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.
