Auto Temp Tower temperatures imbedded in other prints?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Auto Temp Tower temperatures imbedded in other prints?



Ultimaker Cura 5:2.1


I decided to print Auto Temp Towers for all filaments I currently have. I wanted to make sure I print them at the correct temperature. I only have about 11 rolls.


I downloaded the "Auto Towers" extension and printed a couple but then had to print something else I needed to print.

I printed with the current filament which was still in after the temp tower. The correct temperature for this is 190C.  I couldn't understand why it was stringing. I checked and the temperature was 230C. I cleared the building plate with Ctrl-N and opened the STL again and printed again. (I have a Duet board and checked as it prints in the browser.) And then, at layer 4 the temperature changed to 230.

I downloaded the code and searched through it and noticed that the whole script is almost scattered with AutoTowersGenerator code. I realised that although the STL changed, Cure still used the Auto Temp Tower's temperature settings.

Here is The first piece of code where I realised that Cure didn't clear the Temp settings:


M104 S230 ; AutoTowersGenerator setting temperature to 230 for first section
M117 Temp 230 ; AutoTowersGenerator added


I found with regular intervals M104 commands to drop the temperature with 5C.


I know that when doing Auto Temp Towers that I had to remove the script where I manually created script to change the temperature every so many layers.


Please advise if I am doing something wrong or is there a script I need to run to clear the AutoTowersGenerator script from Cura's head?
