Most people set temperature for particular material and speeds for a particular printer and then try not to think about either type of setting again. Learn when you can get away with that, and when you might have to make settings changes.
- [Instructor] Most people will set temperature … for a material and speeds for a printer … and then not think about either type of setting again. … However, there's a related group of settings having … to do with how the print cools. … If those are off, the print may be blobby. … The first thing we want to set is the extruded temperature. … If your machine settings indicate that your printer … has a heated bed, … there will also be an option … to get the build plate temperature. … Temperature is a trial and error thing, … but most manufacturers will suggest a range for a material. … Typically, it's a larger range than you would like … because printer factors matter, as well. … Some combinations of filament and platform surface … will not require heating the build plate … like blue tape for PLA … or Garolite LE for nylon. … If the extruded temperature is too low, … the printer will have trouble extruding … and layers may not stick to previous ones properly. … If your temperature is a little too high, …
