Temperature of extruder drops at start of build


Recommended Posts

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.
