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.
