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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
