I am having some trouble with my printer

When I set the temperature in the control panel to 250 for pla it heats up fine, but when I start to print it starts to print ok for the first couple of layers of print but then it seems to stop extruding and if I go back to control panel the temp would have dropped back to about 150 which is causing the pla to clog up extruder

Is there a way to set the temp to stay at 250 as default

Hope someone out there can help

Dave

    Feels like a wrong setting in Skeinforge, I've seen it do the same. Check if the Temperature plugin is enabled, and if it is, disable it.

    But your printer is working. That's good. Maybe you can upgrade to SkeinPyPy:

    It gives better print results, and the defaults are just right. Also, printing PLA at 250C is a bit overkill. 230C is more then enough. PLA is even printable at 190C (but slower)
