Varying print temperature during a print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Varying print temperature during a print

Good morning everyone!  This has probably been asked and answered many times, but my search so far has not found it.

 

I see a number of calibration prints when the temperature varies with height - clearly this really accelerates dialing in the correct temperature for a filament and nozzle combination.

 

I cannot see how to accomplish a variable temperature print on the UM3 using Cura.  Is this possible?  If so, how?  Is it done within Cura settings, or does it require G-code editing afterwards?

 

Thanks!

John

I may have found an answer, as I thought about the last line and editing G-code, which led me to post processing options where I found the experimental ChangeatZ script.   Is this the recommended solution?  If so, I'd appreciate thoughts on what worked or didn't with it.

 

Cheers

John

I have been using this. It seems to work pretty well but will kick out an ER999 code so just know that is what it is from.

Thank you!  Does the print stop at that code and if so, how have you got around it?

 

Much appreciated.
