What bed temperature do people use with the PLA filament?
Thanks Jon

"For PLA, try a setting of 55-60C. If you go too hot, the PLA will stay liquid and can be pulled away from the bed by the cooling of subsequent layers. Too cold, and it won't stick."

This is our troubleshooting page for the Tricolour Mendel, and has lots of useful tips; we are working on something similar for the Ormerod.

Linked slightly to this thread but managed to get the first print today (hurrah....light at end of tunnel) and I noticed that with pronterface set at 57C for the bed that actually the bed heater was switching round 65C indicated on temp watch on pronterface. Seemed at bit odd as it was the control system doing this against the indicated temperature. I could understand it if I was measuring the temperature independantly and the offset was due to measuring method but in this case its all through pronterface. The extruder temps were okish 202 vs 200 set
