Preheat PLA 1 preheats nozzle and bed

Recommended Posts

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
