Temperature of extruder drops at start of build

Posted · Temperature of extruder drops at start of build

Hi All,

I am trying to print my first test model on a new Ultimaker and I can set up the temperature from the Replicator G Control Panel, but as soon as I try to run the gcode, the heater turns off. Have tried everything that I can find in the settings, but the problem always occurs. I'm using version 0035.

Any ideas please?

Thanks!

Terry

    Hallo,

    in gcode there are lines of code to set the temperature. Some/all slicers (not cura) will input this line with values from preferences.

    So after start the heater will change temp.

    The built in Slic3r profiles are made to create a hot first layer and (sometimes) cooler subsequent layers.

    * I figured it was a way to ensure proper adhesion with the tape.

    In RepG: GCode -> Edit Slicing Profiles -> (select a profile and press edit)

    If the set temperature is too low for a given PLA/ABS you can duplicate a profile and make it more specific to your needs.

      • 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
