I've switched to a PLA of a different color and wanted to figure out what temperature my nozzle should be so I printed a temperature tower. However, the towers came out perfect and the only stringing was from the last bit of plastic oozing out when the print head moved to X-home.
I loaded the tower stl file in Ultimaker Cura and did the post processing script to change the temperature from 240 °C at layer 1 (changing from 200 for the skirt). And decreasing the temp by 10 degrees every segment after. Here is the resulting print vs the expected print:
I was expecting an over-extruded, blobby mess and stringing to make a spider feel at home towards the bottom, but this is one of my best prints yet.
Any ideas why my print looks so good? I'm printing PLA at various nozzle temps, 60 °C on bed with the Creality CR-10S sliced with Ulitmaker Cura 3.6.0.
