We have a brand new Mini and we’re gaining experience with it. Using the included Cura slicer software on Win7.
The nozzle temperature seems to have a selective calibration problem. When we set the temperature in Cura’s manual window (where you can manually “set” the nozzle and bed temperature), the nozzle goes right to that temperature and stays within +/- 1 degree. Works perfectly.
But when we put a target temperature into the setup screens, and then turn it loose to print, it begins printing when the head is exactly 10C below the target temperature (as reported in the window title). And it holds that -10C temperature during the entire print.
The bed temperature is rock-solid, manual or automatic. Always within a degree of the target value.
So… what’s happening here? It seems clear that the hardware and software CAN set and maintain a target temperature (based on the manual results). Why does it hold the head 10C cooler than the target temperature when automatically printing? Is there an offset adjustment somewhere in the software that I should play with?
