How do I change Tempurature Settings in Ideamaker?

Postby Strongbaby » Sat Dec 02, 2017 10:10 pm

I use Ideamaker as my slicer for my Tevo Tarantula. I recently got Makergeeks PLA Filament, and the recommended Temperature for that is 235 degrees. I want to change the settings because my other PLA printed at 190 degrees. I looked all around the settings, Printer Settings, Filament Settings, and the Template settings but could find nothing. Any idea where to change it? I like the slicer but if I cant change the temperature then I will have to change slicers. Thank you!

Please advise which version of ideaMaker you are currently using.
If under version 3.0, temperature settings are under Advanced -> Cooling tab.
If higher than version 3.0, temperature settings are under Advanced -> Temperature tab.

You need to double-click the main template for slicing and then Advanced button to reach the advanced settings.

For some boneheaded reason the filament/extruder temp setting are now in the tab labeled "Cooling".

A BIG suggestion to Raise3D... learn about User-Centered Design!

Yeah, I've never been able to figure out why this is called "Cooling" vs. "Temperature". I'm using 3.1.7 on OS X and all the temperature control settings are under the Advanced menu tab labeled "Cooling". :roll:

I think what we are seeing is the Raise3D HUBRIS. Someone makes a random bonehead decision and ignores users. Now I'm attempting to use Dense Support and I am finding that the Number of layers field and the density field are both disabled and NOTHING I try to do enables them.
