Description

PLA Test for 190 - 230 °C (e.g. Bambu PLA)

The attached .3mf file contains the corresponding gcode for the Heat-Temperature-Tower.
The print takes about 2 hours (tested on my BambuLab A1).

Instructions:
0. Use a Mac / PC. The mobile app does not support custom gcode.


1. Click “Open in Bambu Studio” or download the .3mf file.
2. (Open the .3mf file with Bambu Studio) Click on "slice plate" and then on "print plate"
3. After the print is finished, you can evaluate the Temperature Tower in terms of stringing, accuracy (e.g. overhangs, cones etc.).
4. It also makes sense to evaluate the temperature tower destructively. For example, you can use pliers to break off individual layers of each temperature range and find the optimum layer strength for your PLA.

Info: If you have the problem that only 220 degrees are shown for the whole tower after slicing:

Please click on the drop-down arrow next to the "Download or Print" button here on the website and select "Download STL". Download the file there.

It seems that the "Open in Bambu Studio" option is blocking the gcode right now for some people.

I wanted to test the Bambu PLA in terms of temperature. Many temperature towers uploaded here work in the range of 200 to 240 degrees.

 

Bambu, however, specifies a range of 190 to 230 degrees for its own PLA.
That's why I created my own temperature tower.

My temperature tower tests the Bambu PLA with linear overhang (35° & 45°), radial overhang (4 mm & 6 mm radius), bridging, stringing, cones / circles and simulates "drill holes" and much more.

Something I was curious about and why I decided to try this temp tower with basic bambu PLA was I wanted to see what temp created the best bridge lines as this has caused some unwanted defects in alot of prints where there are exposed bridge lines above supports. @ 230 the bridge lines have quite a bit of sag and theres gapping. @ 225 there's some gapping and sag. @ 220 looks pretty good no gaps but ever so slight sag. @ 215 through 200 pretty bad gapping. Then came what I was looking for. @ 195 and 190 showed some of the best bridge lines I have ever seen yet awful pretty much everything else. Which makes sense as the cooler lines will support themselves better as they are suspended across. Does Bambu slicer allow in any way to code for temp changes of specific line types and not just layers? Like it would be wonderful to be able to lay bridge lines down at 190 and everything else be 225/230 but right now I only know how to change temp for an entire layer which is not ideal due to poorer quality on most other line types at those lower temps

una torre de temperatura que me gustó mucho por que va de una temperatura más alta a la más baja, también tiene varios tipos de figuras por el medio que te ayuda a ver mejor la temperatura ideal

Bed Adhesion Issue:The product was discontinued because it did not adhere to the printing plate.

Hi @user_1689852265 I'm sorry that the printing didn't work out for you. However, I am not responsible for any faulty print preparation on your part. Please clean your printing plate thoroughly and check whether, for example, your heating bed and nozzle are working correctly. More than 750 people have printed my model without any problems.

So am i missing something? When I sliced the 3mf, its 220 degrees for the whole tower. May want to double check your profile. This would send someone down a rabbit hole.

Hi Toprharley, thanks for your message. I have just checked with colleagues, it seems that the "Open in Bambu Studio" option is currently blocking the necessary gcode for the temperature for some people. In the meantime, please click on the drop-down arrow next to the "Download or Print" button here on the website and select "Download STL". Download the file there and open manually with Bambu Studio. Then slice the plate. Does it work for you now?

Replying to @NutellaPizza :
oh awesome! Thanks for looking into it and clearing it up for me. Much appreciated! Will be using this in the future for dialing some of my harder filaments.

I'd like some insight here too. About to run this print myself.

Hi everyone! With the 35° and 45° angle, the PLA is tested in use with overhang without support structure. The bridging is also tested with the simulated drill hole. With each new layer, the 3D printer prints a little further "outwards" or slightly into the air. It is somewhat difficult to photograph, but in my test with the Bambu PLA black, for example, I had problems with the overhang upwards from approx. 220 degrees, as the material was too liquid and was not cooled in time, resulting in a lot of unevenness. The minimum layer time can offer a remedy. Here you can set how long to wait until a new layer is printed. You can also use this to get the heat out of the print. I hope this helps!
