Disable Nozzle Temperature control in Cura 3.3.1?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Disable Nozzle Temperature control in Cura 3.3.1?

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.

    Yes, that seems to work (haven't printed yet, but the GCode clearly has no temp settings anymore).


    Thank you!


    It's going from one extreme to the other, IMO, but it does work.

      • 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
