Default Temperature Settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Default Temperature Settings

I've just started 3d printing with an Anycubic Mega Zero 2. The printer is working fine, but when I set the temperatures in Cura to 205 and 60 (see screenshot) they are not picked up by the printer when the gcode file is loaded from the SD card - the printer stays at it's default (195 and 0) and I have to set them manually before I start printing.

What am I doing wrong?

    Hi @BriPriUK I have a couple of questions.

    First how did you add your printer to Cura? I can't add an Anycubic Mega Zero 2 since there is no definition file in the source. So I can't check it myself. 

    It could be that this is defined in the start g-code. You can check that in the machine settings. Could you make a screenshot of that?

    There are different temperatures that can be set.  You are in the Basic Setting view and can't see them all.

    Above the settings there is a search box and to the right of search box is a dropdown icon of 3 horizontal lines.  Click on that and go down and set the Settings Visibility to "all".

    You will see the temperature section of Material like this:



    I looked at the StartUp Gcode in your printer definition file and it looks fine.  If you would post one of your "bad" gcode files here @fvrmr or I will take a look and see what is going on.

    I’m also having this same issue on my creality CR6-se after updating to Cura 4.10

    im trying to print pla now instead of abs like I normally use and when changing the temps from 250/90 to 210/60 so I can print the pla, it keeps printing at 250/90 on the printer.

    When errors occur they (usually) get documented.  The Cura.log file, your STL file, or a 3mf project file, and sometimes a gode file, may have the clues to a problem.  Without any documention we just have some verbiage that may or may not be an accurate description of what is really going on.

    A problem may occur in an installation, in a model, in a definition, In a user's settings, or in the Cura output.  Without a log or 3mf file then diagnosing a problem is like shooting in the dark.  People here are certainly willing to help, but nobody really likes to just guess.

    So if you would - Please post a 3mf file and your Cura.log file.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
