Enclosure temperature in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Enclosure temperature in Cura



Is there a way to add ad field named "enclosure temperature" in the "print settings" tab of the material management window? (as shown in the embedded picture)

Of course I would like to use this parameter as a variable (e.g. "S{enclosure_temperature}") for use it in the G-code header.


Thank you for your help!

    You can use the Material Settings plugin from the Marketplace.


    Cura already has a "Build Volume Temperature" setting, though it is not used in the gcode. You can insert it in your start gcode snippet as " {build_volume_temperature} ". After installing and restarting Cura, see Extensions -> Material Settings -> Configure Material Settings to add this setting to the list of Print settings in the Materials preferences.
