Topic: Solidoodle Repetier-host settings and PLA temperature`
I've been prnting with PLA and the defaults from the Solidoodle Repetier host install keep forcing the temp to 195.
First thing I did was change the default to 180.... It still changes to 195.
Then I figured out the temp is set by the slicer so I went into Slic3r options and created a PLA temperature seting at 180.
Still the temperature would get set to 195.
Finally, I went to the custom gcode setting for the Soliddoode in Slic3r and I saw the following:
G21; set mm units
G28 ;home all axis
G90; set absolute coordinates
G92 E0; reset extruder distance
M104 S195; set extruder temp and start heating
G1 Z5 F300 ;move platform down 5mm
G1 X145 Y145 F3000 ; move to back right corner
M109 S195; wait for extruder temp to be reached
G1 Z[first_layer_height] F200 ;move platform close to nozzle
;G1 E7; extruder anchor
G1 F3000; Set Feed rate for first move
G92 E0; reset extrusion distance
Slic3r would set my temperature to 180, then include the custome gcode above. Note the M104 line that resets the temperature to 195.
I removed the line and now Slic3r and everything now works fine.
Anyone know why the temperature is hard coded to 195? It was a real pain to find and fix it.
