Manually setting up build bed temp


Recommended Posts

Posted · Manually setting up build bed temp

I am trying to dry printer filament. I need to set the build plate temp to 80C for 10 hrs and place the filament in the printer. However i don't see any settings to manually set the temp or time. Is this possible? Is there another way i can dry filaments without purchasing an oven? Thanks

Material - Fibretuff 2

Machine - Ultimaker S5 pro bundle

    Oh.  Well it's good to go through all the menus on the S5 just to see what is where.  There's some good features hidden all around.


    I recommend unspooling several meters of filament and placing the spool on top of the unspooled filament.  Unspool the amount you expect to need to use (cura can tell you how many meters your print will need in the bottom right corner - among other places).

    I would think that covering the filament with a heat proof cover would work well for this.  I hadn't thought of this, but this is a very good idea.  And, a related use - I am going to try to anneal a small PA6-CF part but turning the bed temperature to 80 degrees for six hours after covering the part with a heat proof cover.

      • 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
