Preheating the Nozzle without the Heatbed - possible?

Hi Everyone,

trying out the tricky Flex Filaments, Filaflex / Polyflex.

Is there a Chance to Preheat the Nozzle without heating the bed?

Both don´t require a heated bed, had to reload due to Loops in the Gears and can´t Preheat without also heating the bed, right?

Thanks in Advance,

Al

in Slic3r, you can set the bed temperature to zero!

or you can choose settings on the LCD, then temperature, bed and set to 0

Thank you Joan,

the Settings in Slic3r have been made.

But can I Preheat the Nozzle on the Printer during a Print (because the Filament ran Havoc) without heating the bed?

On the printer: Settings > Temperature > Nozzle

instead of Preheat.. is that what you're looking for?

If you use OctoPrint you can set Nozzle and Heatbed temperatures separately

Hi Al.g

on the LCD display, you can access the menu 'Settings' and sub menu 'temperature' and the sub option Nozzle. where you can select the temperature that you want.

this can be used to preheat the nozzle before a print, or to change the temperature of the nozzle during a print!

I hope this helps you,
regards Joan
