Posted · non uniform heat in software

I have a bibo dual extruder, which is inputted into cura as a non network printer. Both nozzles are set to generic PLA which used to be set permanently to 200* although for some reason now when I save the file to a removable drive it sets the temperature of nozzle 2 to 175 degrees while nozzle 1 stays at 200 degrees. I checked the actual code and it says "M104 T1 S175" rather than the "M104  T1 S200" that I would expect. To fix this, I changed the 175 to 200 on lines 17 and 21, but it only allowed the pre heating to be 200 degrees. I couldn't find any other instances of the 175 so I don't know the cause. I have uninstalled every file related to cura, ended its task and done everything I can, I don't know what else to do.

    175 degrees is the standard "Standby temperature" for PLA. Cura uses the standby temperature to prevent oozing and material degradation by keeping the same material in the hotend.

    Thank you, but I thought this might be the case so I let it run until the nozzle would have been needed, but the temperature never raised, and the motor couldn't or just wouldn't push out the filament in the 175* nozzle. due to this, the support wasn't printed, and the model all got stuck to the one hot head (not a big deal, just to show that nozzle one worked as expected).
