In this option, you can adjust the temperature that the extruder will have when printing.
If the optimal temperature is higher than the recommended limit, you may be experiencing underextrusion problems, follow this guide to solve it: How to fix underextrusion
Build plate temperature
To make sure your piece is well adhered to the printing surface, it is necessary that the surface is hot enough. This parameter indicates the surface temperature.
If you have any problem with adhesion or warping, raising a little bit the temperature of the bed can help to solve the problem, you will find in this article many other options for this case. How to fix first layer issues
First layer temperature
The first layer of the piece is crucial in the printing process, that's why it is so important to ensure that the filament adheres well to the surface.
For this, the temperature of the extruder and the printing surface can be raised when printing the first layer, this will make the material adhere better and prevent warping or total loss of printing
Tip: Adding 5 degrees to the normal printing temperature may be enough to improve adhesion.
When you print a model that needs two different materials, there is always one extruder that is in resting mode while the other is printing. During this resting process, the extruder lowers its temperature until it stays on standby temperature, This happens in order to avoid burning the material in the hotend, causing a clog and waste material by dripping.
