Altering default build plate temp

It may be that I'm missing something basic, but how do you alter the build plate temp and get it to become the default? My temp is set at 75, I alter it to 60 but at the next print it's back to 75. I've tried to go down to led settings and saving but it still resets to 75 each time.

    On the printer before you start the print go into MATERIAL > SETTINGS > CUSTOMIZE. Keep all of the settings for the material you are using but change the build plate temp and then store as preset.

    After you hit save or whatever there is a non-obvious step where you have to select PLA again.

    Not only that, but it is kind of buggy in the original firmware so you might want the latest firmware which comes with the latest Cura. With older firmware, after saving PLA settings you have to change the LED settings and then maybe power cycle? It took my about 10 tries. With the newer firmware you just have to know about the last step where you select PLA.

    You can also use the process above to change the settings of the Default ABS and PLA choices.

    IIRC, this option did not seem to appear until I had created two new custom Settings - Custom1 and Custom2. After that, the Customize feature allowed me to save my changes over the ABS and PLA Settings.

    Seems unlikely but I don't have any evidence to contradict you. I just remember it took me about 30 tries with that stupid menu to get it to finally work. I also created a custom1 and custom2 which I don't use anymore as I just use PLA setting now. Finding the easter egg was easier than getting this to work.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
