PID tuning bed

Repeat depending on:

  • physical parameters of the bed (material, thickness, heater)
  • potentially chamber temperature (personally I have no experience)

This step only requires to run


Multiple PID values can be saved and recalled whenever it's needed, but in general the values are not very specific: a tuning at 60 °C will be perfectly fine between 40-80 °C, maybe even more. I personally used a tuning at 70 °C up to 140 °C and the temperature oscillations were basically non-existent. No Z banding was visible at all.
