Heated Bed Affecting Nozzle Temp Regulation

Posted · Heated Bed Affecting Nozzle Temp Regulation

I have built a heated bed using 8mm aluminium plate. This is independently controlled and powered at the moment for simplicity. It sits at 110 degrees with not much variation as it is a huge thermal mass.

I have now noticed that it is seriously affecting the regulation of the nozzle temperature which was previously excellent.

This is resulting in serious ripple and layer separation in the z-axis when the temperature drops too low. (But with no warp!)

I am printing ABS at a set-point of 276 °C. The reported temperature from the thermocouple varies between 231 and 277 instead of the usual few degrees.

Marlin, Skein Py Py.

Can anyone offer any advice?

EDIT: I have eliminated a few variables (including the heated bed) and I think I have isolated the problem to the temperature control algorithm in Marlin. I will post my data in the Firmware, Marlin area as that seems to be the best place to find help for this problem

        (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.
