Heat settings in Cura

Recommended Posts

Your basic tab should have 5 headlines marked in bold:

- Quality

- Fill

- Speed & Temperature

- Support

- Filament

Speed and Temperature should have settings for... Well... Speed and temperature...

It sounds like maybe you are in basic settings mode... Which you shouldn't use... Do you have a button somewhere that says "Switch to full settings"?

For Ultimaker2, it's best to use "ultigcode" mode which allows you to control the temperature on the machine itself.

For Ultimaker Original you *must* use normal gcode mode which allows you to control the temperature in Cura.

Switching between machine types in Cura makes the temperature appear and disappear in the gui.

Even for UMO prints I set temperature to 0C and controll it on the machine instead.

I'm in Full Settings.

I have Quality, Fill, Speed & Temperature & Support. Speed & Temperature only has an option for speed.

Yes, I can change the setting on the machine, but having found setting which suit me & the machine, it would be nice to have Cura set them automagically. The only way I can set the temperature is by adding an M104 to the gcode. I can use TweekAt but only after layer 0, so I still have to edit the gcode :-|

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
