Temperature of extruder drops at start of build

Recommended Posts

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

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.
