unwanted nozzle cooling when nozzle is not in use

Posted · unwanted nozzle cooling when nozzle is not in use

I am wondering how to turn off whatever cools down the nozzle that is not being used. I have a Bibo2, and though I see the use for this on bigger projects, when I am printing small objects with two colors, this feature makes the print time doubled, I do not mind having some of one color getting where it shouldn't be as these are insensitive prints, I just dont want something that should be done in four hours taking almost eight

    Hi @Grindyloww2

    In Cura under the "Material" settings, you will see a setting for "Standby Temperature", if you set this to match your printing temperature or keep it close to it for both nozzles via swapping between the nozzle tabs and editing the setting for both, it will keep the temperature up matching the printing temperature.


    Note this setting might be hidden from view so you will need to search for it via the search bar or click the menu button next to the search bar and pick all to display all settings.
