Extrusion at lower temperature than default

Dear all,


Does anyone know how to enable printing at lower temperature (100-120°C)? Im currently testing new materials for the creatr but the software does not allow me (preventing cold extrusion).


Thanks!


 As far as I know that setting is in the firmware.

From the Configuration.h file for the Creatr Dual:


#define EXTRUDE_MINTEMP 150


If you don't have the factory firmware you can get a copy by creating a support ticket.

Thanks! I give it a try.


Open the control panel in Simplify3D and send a M302 command to the connected printer which overrides the prevention of cold extrusion. You only have to send it once until the printer is rebooted.

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
