Nozzle temperature - remember setting ?

Cura 14.07, Ultimaker2.

Ultimaker2 -

Is there a way to make the UM2 store my previous (nozzle) temperature setting? Currently it always defaults to 210C each time I use the machine. (I'm using white PLA and find 190C works better - so I have to manually tweak this each time I print)

Cura 14.07 -

There is a speed and temperature panel in Cura. But only speed is adjustable.

Where is the temperature setting?

Kind regards,

Chris

    Kind of. You can go to the 'Material' section on the UM2 and then choose 'Settings -> Customize' (or something along those lines, I can't go through the exact steps at the moment as I'm currently printing). In there you can enter your desired nozzle temperature (and also tune other options, if you like). Then when you're done save your modified settings as a custom material type, and select that type whenever you load your white PLA.

    That'll do basically what you want, and it's certainly more convenient than manually dialing in the temperature on every print. The only ugly bit is that you don't get to assign a descriptive name to your custom material; it will be named something like "Custom1" and you'll just have to remember that "Custom1 is for White PLA".

    @Ignace: The nozzle temperature stays at zero until the print bed gets close to the set temperature this because the nozzle heats up much faster. Also when you go in to the tune menu while print bed is heating up so before the nozzle temperature is set it stays at 0 (even if bed has reached desired temperature) until you leave the tune menu. If you then go back into the tune menu you will see the nozzle temperature is set correctly. Hope this helps :-)

    :-O there is a manual? Maybe I should have read it before I unpacked mine and broke one of my limit switches, luckily I had an other one laying around :-)

      • 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
