Disable Nozzle Temperature control in Cura 3.3.1?

Recommended Posts

It would be nice if it were possible to disable temperature control for the nozzle, similar to how it is with the bed.

I'm using OctoPrint, and I preheat the nozzle - and sometimes I like to try different temperatures without having to re-slice the model, or send custom g-code in-between.

 

I seem to remember that it was possible in previous versions (i.e. old Cura), and there was a discusson on GitHub about it, where it was said that there is a setting somewhere for that - I didn't find it, though, so maybe it's in the underlying json files?

 

In any case, I think it would be useful if the temperature setting for the nozzle worked the same way as for the bed.

This should be possible as follows:

* go to Help -> Show configuration folder

* close cura

* In the configuration folder, go to "definition_changes"

* in that folder, find the *_settings.inst.cfg for your printer, and open it in a text editor

* add the following line to the [values] section:

machine_nozzle_temp_enabled = False

* save the file

* restart Cura

You should now no longer be able to set temperatures in Cura, and the gcode should also not have temperatures in it anymore.

    • 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.
