First few layers, bed temperature always 80 degrees C?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am using mWare 1.1.9, and trying to print using white ABS.  

I have set the bed temperature to 110 degrees for every layer from -4 to +4. but the first couple of layers always print with a bed temperature of 80 degrees.

Looking at the gcode file, the first instruction is M140 S80.000000, and the first layer is labelled -6.

Is this intentional?  Is there any way to get the first layers to print at 110 degrees for better raft adhesion?  Is this actually a good idea?  (I am new to ABS.)

had the same problem. What i do is pause the printing before it starts printing the raft. then scroll down to "change parameters" (using menu on the printer itself) and change the bed temp to 110.

then just wait for bed to heat up before resuming the print.
