Raise temp of nozzle


Recommended Posts

Posted · Raise temp of nozzle

You go to the materials section of the first 'page' of the menu on the printer and click. By click, I mean to push on the lit wheel on the front panel. Then go down to the printcores 1 & 2, click on each one and use set temperature. That will heat the nozzles just fine. I have found that for PVA and PLA that 150°C works well. Enough to soften the gunk on the outside, but not enough to make it burn or dribble filament out of the interior.

I think it's easy to miss because there's 2 sets of menus; the Material Menu, and the Print Core menu. You can also use the "Move" option in the Material menu to manually heat it, but you can't control the temperature with that, it will automatically go up to around 200 (varies depending on material installed). Print Core menu is the best option for manually setting it to a specific temperature.

Please explore all the menus.  There's not a lot there.  Knowing what you can do in the menus will probably save you later.  For example the "cold pull" feature may save you some day.


Anyway - from memory - on the left side there are 3 menus.  You want the middle one.  Then the screen will show left core on left side, and right core on right side.  There are two choices - for just temp select the middle (in height) image (I think it's the core?) and then in the top right corner click the "..." where you can set the temp.


Or you can pick the upper image (should be the filament) and again click the "..." and select "MOVE" which will heat it up but I don't think you can choose the exact temp.  But has the added benefit that you can move the filament.


You can also move filament by just lifting the lever on the feeder and sliding the filament in or out by hand (as long as you don't have the material station).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
