Preheat PLA 1 preheats nozzle and bed

Posted · Preheat PLA 1 preheats nozzle and bed

Since I installed the heated bed kit on my Ultimaker original and updated the firmware (with Cura 14.09), I have two menu entries for preheating PLA: Preheat PLA 1 and Preheat PLA bed.

When I choose Preheat PLA 1, I expected that only the nozzle is heated, but it heats the bed too. Is that normal? Seems to be a bug for me, otherwise it makes no sense to have two menu entries.

    This behaviour is indeed intended. Usually the bed needs more time to heat up than the nozzle. So the bed can be selected alone, e.g. if you use a filament which should not stay too long heated up (e.g. Woodfill or Lay-Wood). Don't forget, it's a preheat option and not a maintenance option for the hotend.
