Temperature never reachs

Sat Aug 05, 2017 8:57 am

hi all,

on repetier host the nozzle temperature reach's it' set temp, in simply 3d it always settles between 1 or 2 degree's short and never starts the print.

is there an adjustment for the temperature readings at all?

or how do i sort this out?

it's a Melzi 2 V3 tronxy board running repetier 9.1 (no options for uploading marlin untill i get a programmer and run the gauntlet with that BS.)
other issues are the board wont accept PID tune or read the eeprom setting comands. The axis moves and the extruder will exstrude, homing works too.

I would check the temperature set command in the gcode file.
I would bet s3d is setting it correctly. If the printer can't hold the temperature
I would try to print slower. Less plastic flowing per second is easier to heat up and keep up to temperature.
My Trinus is very bad about that.

This is really common if you have bad PID tuning. The temperature will just stop 1 or 2 degrees below the desired setpoint. So you might want to check your firmware PID tune
