Unshare build plate temperature while printing with one material on dual extrusion machine


Recommended Posts

Posted · Unshare build plate temperature while printing with one material on dual extrusion machine

On our S5 printer we are now experimenting with printing ABS on one extruder.

The build plate temperature for this material is higher than that of PLA (85 instead of 60).

On the other extruder we are still using PLA. In cura the build plate temperature is set to the material that demands the highest (ABS in this case) for both printer profiles.

Due to this one of our pure PLA prints faild miserably due to warping.

Is there a way to make this setting switch according to the extruder settings of the objects that are placed in CURA (so that only when ABS is actually selected for the print, the build plate temperature is highered.)?

Or do you have any other tips for how to deal with this?

    Thanks for the answer! Unfortunately not what I was hoping for, do you know if there are plans to improve this?

    It's a rather fundamental issue I'm afraid. We haven't come up with a way to do it that doesn't also break some other things.
