Controlling curling / overriding temperatures


Recommended Posts

Posted · Controlling curling / overriding temperatures

I'm running into issues with curling on an ABS print.  The piece I'm printing curves down it's length, with pronounced curling at one end.


To this point, I've manged to improve the print with a hacked-together enclosure of light insulation, and I'm using a PEI surface, but my next thought was to try increasing the bed temp by 10 deg C.


I'm using ABS from MatterHackers - I can't seem to find a CUra profile for it, but the VIllage ABS setting seems to work well enough, though the extruder temp may be 5 deg C higher than recommended for MatterHackers ABS.

In any case, at very least, I'd like to figure out how to override just the bed temperature for an existing material.  I tried duplicating the material, but duplication doesn't really work.  I'm not sure why, but I suspect it's because the profiles aren't duplicated as well.  Is there an easier way to override one single setting?

        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.
