How to heat up the nozzle


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to heat up the nozzle

Hi guys, a quick noob question...

how does one heat up the nozzle without having to print something? the older versions of cura had this option but i cannot find this option in the latest version.

i have a blockage so i just want to heat it up to clean it a bit.

thanks

    if you have an ultimaker2.. on the little screen. click maintinance. then advanced.. then there is an option to heat up the nozzle.. then just set the temp and the nozzle will rise to that temp.

    I would download Printrun and use that, both for controlling the printer and for actual printing: http://koti.kapsi.fi/~kliment/printrun/

    daid is doing a re-design of the whole interface of cura. Unfortunately he removed some functionality before adding it back in which is why the print interface in cura is a bit sparse at the moment. The new printing interface is editable by anyone and I think there might be one or two people working on improving it, but it might take time. For example here's owen's mod:

    Sergei, if i need the nozzle heated i use either the bed levelling wizard or the dual extrusion calibration. Both heat up the nozzle(s).

    You could also start a print, and click "pause" before it starts actually printing anything, yet it will heat the nozzle.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.
