Can not set material temperature

Recommended Posts

Posted · Can not set material temperature

When slicing for an UM2+ I am unable to set the material temperature temperature. According to the tooltip in the settings, temperature controls are hidden by "auto temperature" or "enable nozzle temperature control". However I am not able to find "enable nozzle temperature control". Looks like bug to me - thoughts?

    Change the gcode flavor to “Marlin” in machine settings. If you keep it on “Ultimaker 2”, Cura has to relay temperature control to the firmware.

    The short of it: Even after gaining access to the "Enable Nozzle Temperature Control", I still wasn't able to used the "Auto Temperature" feature.


    In my case, I was not able to get access to the "Enable Nozzle Temperature Control" option without first installing the printer settings plugin (Figure 1). Then you need to enable the "Show all Settings" option to get the "printer settings" tab to appear (Figure 2). However Even after going into the newly available "printer settings " tab and enabling "Enable Nozzle Temperature Control", the "Auto Temperature" feature was still un-enabled (Figure 3).


    Plugins are now in the "Marketplace" not the now missing toolbox menu, which currently most things talking about Cura make reference too right now.

    Windows 10 version 1809, Unlimaker Cura version 4.2.1
