Heated Bed Affecting Nozzle Temp Regulation

Recommended Posts

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

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
