In MatterControl you can add a 'Set Temperature' object and place it at the height you want the temperature to change.
You can find it in 'Design Apps'/'Calibration Parts'
It looks like this:
You can then move it to the height you want to change the temp and set the temp on the right
Old topic but worth an update anyway (as google finds this for temperature tower)
MatterControl now includes support for temperature towers which can be great at helping dial in your filament temperature settings.
You can find the temperature tower in your Library.
There are temperature towers setup for ABS, PLA and PETG, but if you need a custom tower or want to change the temperatures beyond the default you can easily adjust one of the provided towers.
After dragging it to the bed you can select it and change what temperature it starts at, how much the temperature changes each time and how many times it changes.
You can also directly add a temperature change object to your print to create your own temperature towers or effects.
This is the object to add to the bed to customize your own settings.
You can set the height by moving it up and down and set the temperature to change to in the properties panel.
This was great to see. One particular model I have been working on had me wishing for similar feature and I didn't realise it was already there, I just wasn't taking the right approach. This is awesome. Thank you for creating and sharing this video Lars. And thanks for the post and sharing Tinken.
Sequential printing would be great. It is especially helpful for those of us who have large industrial printers. Not just one part at a time, but groups of parts at a time. The slicer I use to currently achieve this is not fun to work with.
Smaller printers, for example the Pulse XE can be easily modified to use longer print beds. I have seen small printers with beds one meter long. These systems work great for sequential printing.
@cope413 I was aware of the first layer adjustment. It was still 0 however even though the control parameter Z offset was 0.08mm. Not sure if the layer adjustment should have said 0.08mm because of the control setting - problem?
Yes, it looks like monotonic infill was causing an issue with support. This is your part with monotonic turned off. Printed in PETG, 0.2mm layers, 0.6mm air gap
Here's a pic with supports removed
They came off in one piece very easily. I'd probably go to 0.5mm air gap to make the bottom layer a little tighter, but it's pretty clean as-is.
