Printer settings in Cura 3.2.1

Recommended Posts

I have three monoprice 3d printers in my classroom.  I recently upgraded the software to Cura 3.2.1  For the most part, it seems to work better, however, I want to control the temperatures within the settings, and I can not find how to adjust the bed and extruder temps.

 

In the "how to" section of your site, you list "Machine" as one of the custom setting options, but I don't have that when i pull it up.  What am I missing?

On right side of Cura, next to "print setup" make sure "Custom" is selected (versus "Recommended").  Then two lines down in the "search" box type "temp".  

 

If you don't see any temperatures then Cura thinks the temperature is controlled on the printer only.  That is the case for example with the Ultimaker 2.  So if there are no temperatures the next step is at the top right corner there is a black box with your printer type, click that drop down and then "manage printers".  Not sure what to do at that point.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
