Use different temperatures for first layer

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Use different temperatures for first layer

Hi

New to both 3d printing and Cura, I tried playing with the various temperature settings but could achieve a first layer of 240/85 with subsequent layers 250/90. I'm using Prusament PETG and those numbers came from their PrusaSlicer profile for that material.

 

I'm tring Cura because it has defaults for a CR10. I have a Sovol SV01 which is very similar except it has a direct drive extruder.

 

Thanks in advance.

I print PETG (Real brand filament) on a SV01 and use 240/55 for all layers, you don't need the build plate that hot, surely?

Prusa do not publish a profile for their Prusament PETG for use with Cura, the PrusaSlicer default for PETG uses the values I gave. The filament box says 240-260 and 70-90 bed.

 

I use Prusament because it's consistant and they don't gouge you for shipping.
