Posted · Initial layer temperature not set in 4.11? (SOLVED)

Hi All,

Upgraded to 4.11 yesterday and for a difficult print I set the initial layer temperature to a rather higher level than the remaining layers (215°C vs 201°C).

However the print still didn't work and after some further investigation in the GCode, I cannot see that the initial temperature has been set - the standard printing temperature is set at the start and is never changed.

 

Happy to be told that I have not correctly set something up....

 

snip from the Gcode (temperature set is highlighted in RED😞

T1 ;switch to other head
M109 S201.0 ; Wait for the temp to hit 200
G00 X125 Y-60 Z0.2 ;
G00 Z0
G92 E0 ;
G01 E25 F100 ; Extrude a little bit to replace oozage from auto levelling
G01 X100 Y-50 F100 ;
G01 Z5 ;

M109 S201.0
M82 ;absolute extrusion mode
;Deltacomb Extruder 2
;Put your custom code here
M83 ;relative extrusion mode
M83 ;relative extrusion mode
G1 F2400 E-3.5
;LAYER_COUNT:198
;LAYER:0
M107
M204 T2250
M566 X600 Y600
G1 F10200 Z1.3
G0 F7140 X5.943 Y2.519 Z1.3
M204 P1000
M566 X1500 Y1500
;TYPE:SKIRT
G1 F10200 Z0.3

 

and down at the start of layer #1:

;TIME_ELAPSED:42.647882
;LAYER:1
M106 S127.5
M204 P1333
M566 X1500 Y1500
;TYPE:WALL-INNER
;MESH:Part Studio 1 - Part 1a.stl
G1 F3360 X2.206 Y-0.014 E0.13276

 

and a snip from the settings:

    That's because your start-gocde probably sets the printing temperature and not the initial printing temperature.

    Well there is a set print temperature to 200 because I do a preload of the nozzle and squirt a few mm off bed after bed levelling and before running the main code.

    But why should an initial M109 prevent the initial layer temperature from being set?

    Because you use the {material_print_temperature} instead of {initial_material_print_temperature} replacement tag in the g-code (or well, that's what I think is going wrong)

    Thank you very much - exactly the problem, well solved from a distance.

     

    Not a bug, just the operator (again!)
