Temp tower in cura

Posted · Temp tower in cura

Trying to print a temp tower in cura. Using the change AtZ. Create 10 changes at 5mm. Starting at 225 down to 180 every 5mm. However, first one prints at 225, but second level drops to 180. What am i doing wrong? following the instructions on the web, from different sites.

    This comes up once in a while.  Earlier versions didn't like Zhops.  What version of Cura and do you happen to have Z hops enabled in the print?

    If you use By Layer it should be OK.

    Been playing around. Found a video where the guy describes how to count the layers, deduct base divide remaining layers etc. The other instructions i found were not so clear. Got it working, with a pre sliced g-code file.

        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.
