    I've measured the temperature of the PLA coming out of the nozzle using a multimeter with a thermocouple probe, and found it to be about 20 degrees lower than what Printrun reports - so I just print 20 degrees higher than what I want - I usually use 210, so that it is actually coming out at about 190, which seems a good temperature for PLA - a little bit stringy, but the hobbed bolt doesn't slip and chew anymore.
