Odd. Wonder what i'm doing wrong then.
I'll have to go through the settings one more time...

By default Kisslicer uses M140 and M104 for temperature settings. These set the temperature but don't wait for the temp to be hit before continuing. Add the following to lines to the Prefix area of the Ptr G-Code tab.

Code: Select all
M190 S<BED> ; warm up the bed
M109 P<EXT+0> S<TEMP> ; pre-heat extruder

I have similar GCode in my prefix area.

One thing I need to look into that I don't like is...When the temperature drops after the first layer, it waits to reach that temp. It takes about 20-30 seconds. I would rather it not wait. It would probably drop faster anyway if it were extruding and moving. It is just a different GCode, but I need to figure out where/how to change that.

You're right, Gadroc, i didn't have the M190 in the prefix g-code.

Weird part is, i could've sworn it was there before.
Might've gotten lost when i've switched to a newer version of KISS (i lost a few other settings, i assume because the printer config file format changed).

Thanks for the tip!

To set the bed temperature without waiting (after the first layer), use M140, not M190 (and don't use M116 after it either).

Bart on the layer change I think uses the select extruder gcode tab. Mine reads as follows and does not pause for cool down between layers.
Code: Select all
M104 P<EXT+0> S<TEMP>

Excellent...I had M109. The resulting GCode looks good.
