Material temperature

Recommended Posts

I need to set correct temperature for my PETG material. At first, I tried to create a custom one with exact settings - 230°C for print temperature. Unfortunately, generated code started with temperature 210°C:


;Filament used: 62.6457m
;Layer height: 0.15
;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 3.1.0
M82 ; absolute extrusion mode
G21 ; set units to millimeters
G90 ; use absolute positioning
M82 ; absolute extrusion mode
M104 S210 ; set extruder temp
M140 S90 ; set bed temp
M190 S90 ; wait for bed temp
M109 S210 ; wait for extruder temp
G28 W ; home all without mesh bed level
G80 ; mesh bed leveling
G92 E0.0 ; reset extruder distance position

Temperature 230°C was set later ( line number about 3000 ). So I assumed, it has something to do with the first level temperature. Unfortunately, when I set it, 210 was still there. Finally, I chose some of default materials, which was close to my one - see the attached picture. All temperatures are set to 235°C in Cura, but gcode still has 210°C at the beginning. What am I doing wrong?

I don't know the answer to your question but...


On your screenshot it shows "search...".


First make ALL settings visible, and then enter "temp" into that search box in your screenshot.  Perhaps there is another temperature setting (I'm not sure).

gr5 - thanks a lot for your quick response - I tried it before - I even did it under Preferences -> Settings as I expected it probable somewhere outside Material - yep, I found couple of other "temperatures", but non of them was set to 210, when I made them visible - see the attached screenshot.

The 210 temperature in the start gcode issue is a known issue in Cura 3.1, and will be fixed in Cura 3.2.

That may be why my petg prints came out badly as opposed to before.


I thought I mucked things up. Thanks for clearing this up! :)
