Cura bug sets nozzle temperature to 0 instead of leaving control to printer

Straight to the chase: if you set the nozzle temperature to 0 in Cura, and the printer instead of immediately starting the print at the temperature YOU set on it, it sets the nozzle temperature to 0, then there is a workaround which is not straightforward at all.

As per this forum post:

  • Inside Cura, open Help menu and click on Show configuration folder
  • close Cura
  • open subfolder “definition_changes” inside the configuration folder explorer window that just popped up
  • open your printer’s *_settings.inst.cfg in notepad
  • identify [values] section and add
    machine_nozzle_temp_enabled = False
  • start Cura after having saved the modified file
