We are excited to announce heated bed capability in our cloud slicer!  If you already have a printrbot.cloud account, follow the steps below to get started.

“This is a beta test server, the final version will require a firmware update to start the bed heating first while it gets the bed offset to auto level. During beta, the printer will pause after the purge filament extrusion and heat up the bed to 60C, then print. The final version will also allow you to set the bed temperature to whatever you want as long as it is capable of the temp you enter. Feel free to swap out the tip size if you have a .4mm or .6mm tip. Other sizes have not successfully tested yet- some extrusion flow issue we are tracking down. During beta, the starting gcode will execute after the preprogrammed start code that resides on the printrhub executes… and not sure about the ending gcode. But hey, it’s a beta!”
