Extruder and Heated Bed Temperature Recommendations

The correct extruder and bed temperatures will vary based on the type of plastic (ABS/PLA), filament manufacturer, ambient temperature, and the model of the printer. Every spool of filament requires small temperature adjustments to get the best prints.

Use these temperatures as a starting point, and make adjustments to your own filament profiles as needed.
