First Layer Temperature

Recommended Posts

Posted · First Layer Temperature

This is one that's had me stumped for a while.


In another slicer (S3D), I can set the first layer to be different (hotter) than the following layers. 


For example, with PLA, I would usually do the first layer 5 C hotter, then on layer 2, reduce it.


The Setting seems to point to something I just can not locate in the long list of setting controls.

sounds like...

  • UM2 (+)
  • and G-code flavor still set to "Ultimaker 2"


"Nozzle Temperature Control" is usually enabled for all G-code flavors except "Ultimaker 2".

With "Ultimaker 2" some of the material settings are handled by the printer (as you probably know...).


G-code flavor can be changed in the machine settings.
