Retaining nozzle and bed temp settings after printing is done


Recommended Posts

Posted · Retaining nozzle and bed temp settings after printing is done

Is it possible to set Cura default settings to retain the nozzle and bed temps when printing is finished? 


I want to go on with printing another object but the GCode sets the nozzle and bed temps back to zero.  Also, I have to manually adjust the bed temp back to 60C to get the object to release from the bed.


I'm using Cura 4.13.0 and a Ender 5 Plus.

    There are a couple of lines in your End Gcode that shut off the fan, the bed, the hot end, and disable the steppers.

    You can set "hard" numbers or you can set Cura keywords.

    Go to "Settings | Printer | Manage Printers | Machine Settings" and in the bottom right of the dialog is your End Gcode.  There will be lines:

    M104 S0 (shut off the hot end)

    M140 S0 (shut off the bed)

    M107 (or M106 S0.  Either will turn off the layer cooling fan)

    M84 X Y E (disable all steppers but Z)  This command will cause X Y E to lose their location information.  As long as there is a G28 at the start of the next file it shouldn't matter.  Not disabling Z keeps be X beam (or the bed) from drifting downward into the print.

    Adding a semi-colon in front changes a line from a command into a comment that the printer will ignore.  You can change them to:

    ;M104 S0 (Cura will ignore the line since it is now a comment.)

    M140 S60 (hard number that the printer will respond to and set the bed to 60°)

    M106 S0  (turn off the layer cooling fan)

    M84 X Y E (disable stepper motors.  If you put in M84 S1800 then the steppers will remain active for 1800 seconds (30 minutes)

    The line for the bed could also be:

    M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}

    That would maintain the bed temperature at whatever it was for the print.  A semi-colon would just comment it out.


    Understand that doing it that way means it will stay on forever unless you physically turn the machine off.  Don't forget.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
