Print Temperatures?

Recommended Posts

I'm really curious to know what most of you guys print at in terms of temp. I have been playing with this a lot lately and my results vary a great deal. I'm reading people printing as low as 215 but I have only had one type of PLA where that temperature actually worked.

Right now I have been printing primarily with Clear and Green, and In general the clear has been working at 240 and the green at 250. I was able to run the green at 240 a few times however there were a few occasions where it cause the print to fail.

I have been doing all my prints at 100mm/sec for the most part and I know that faster speeds require more temp so the extruder can keep up however I feel like I'm generally running hotter then most so I figured I would come here and find out what others are doing.

I have only tried silver, and I print at 200 degrees, but I use 210 degrees for the first layer (with the fan turned off). If I print at 195 or below it looks ok, but the model breaks easilly because the layers does not stick very well...

Different colours may require different temperatures though...

I currently print at 190c at 50mm/sec and 220c at 80mm/sec at 0.1mm layers, all the pla i use is from faberdashery, i found the pla which came with

ultimaker poor and caused issues and poor prints, not looked back since i switched to faberdashery, more expensive but less hassle and failed prints.

    • "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.
