Are you sure?

When you first start a print, the 'Tune' menu is going to show the nozzle temp as 0, while it heats up the bed. Only when the bed is mostly heated does it turn on the nozzle heater. This is to avoid leaving the head sitting hot for a long time and cooking the filament inside.

well that explains it thanks ive been cranking it up as soon as it starts heating the bed. i hope i haven't ruined anything. thanks for the quick reply!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
