E3D Volcano loosing temp then trips out

Volcano extruder is pushing out so much plastic that the heater cartrage carnt keep it hot enough with stock settings. I have already set max to 255 but do i need to up P, I or D numbers?


  • PID is just to hold a temperature. If you start printing faster it should adjust power up to 255 also you never should work at the peak - then you are simply too close to the limit. Check in host/server what the heater output is. Also note that there is a limit what you can heat up and that is then your speed limit. Temperature control needs some time to adjust to new requirements in terms of heating power.
