Hello, I am brand new to 3d printing.

 

Got an Ender 3 v2. I tried to do a couple of prints today but ran into a couple of issues. The nozzle temperature set via the Printing Temperature setting as 205°C in Cura appeared as 0°C once the print started on the printer. The Default Temperature Setting cannot be displayed as it is stated as "hidden by the active machine". Also the Print Speed setting is set to 50 in Cura but appears as 100 once the print is launched on the printer. 

 

Any idea why these two settings don't get to appear and work as they were set in Cura? 

 

Thank you very much for your help!

 

Happy Printing.

 

Edit: I am using the latest version of Cura, 4.7.1

    This leads me to think you are direct connecting via USB while printing ? 

     

    If so, don't. You're better off printing from SD card. While the USB connection does give you the ability to give direct g-code instruction to your printer, if the PC you're using goes down mid print, you're screwed. 

     

    We also need more info ( as GregValiant highlighted ). What's the firmware version on your printer ?, is this happening with the default print profiles and generic materials selection ? etc etc. The more info you can provide and any possible files to upload ( like the post sliced g-code ) will  help hugely. 

     

    One thing that could also be a factor here is your selected material profile. In the material section, you can specify a temperature for that material, separate to the temp settings in the printer profile section. It could be that your printer profile is overriding your material settings. 

     

    Regardless, we are all largely guessing atm without more info.

    I think there is some confusion regarding the speed.  The LCD does not display the speed of any move.  It displays the Feed Rate (Fr) %.  100% means your 50mm/sec comes in and goes out as 50mm/sec.  During a print you can use the Tune menu and change the main parameters of a print.  FlowRate%, FeedRate%, HotEnd°, Bed°, and Fan%.  If you bump the speed up to 110% then your 50 comes in and goes out as 55.  In a gcode file the speed is expressed in mm/minute.   I'm sure that if you check the code you will see a lot of F3000's.  Not on every line since that isn't required, but they will be in there.
