PID tuning (Hotend)
PID tuning is a great feature which can be used when you are experiencing a variation in temperature readings of your nozzle (e.g +/- 5 C°).
How to do PID tuning
Since firmware version 2.0.12. it is an integrated (yet optional) calibration, which is super easy to perform. It can be found in the LCD Menu - Calibration - PID calibration.
You can follow these steps:
- Once you open the PID calibration menu, you will have to set temperature for which the calibration will run.
- Set the temperature with which you print the most as it will be tuned/ calibrated for this one the best. However, general stability will improve at all temperatures.
- After that, the nozzle will heat up to the set temperature in 5 cycles. During these cycles, it is mastering the amount of power needed to reach the temperature and maintain it.
