Creality CR-10S Pro 3D printer heated bed turns off after first few layers: normal?

  • When I run prints on my Creality CR-10S Pro 3D printer (using Ultimaker Cura as slicer), I set the heated bed to around 70 °C for PETG. after the first few layers, the heated bed set point changes to 0 °C.

    Is it normal for a 3D printer to turn the heated bed off during a print, or is this a problem?

    I have had some parts warping, and wonder if this is a potential cause.

    Maybe you could add a link to the G-code file that you are printing? Which slicer do you use? To be sure, the print commences after the temperature is lowered, or does the print stop?

    To those saying that bed heating turning off during a print is not normal, please do not spread this misinformation. Note, Michael and Lewis' replies regarding the CR-10S "ECO Mode". Also Ultimaker Cura has an option to change bed temperature after the first layer.

    No, this is not common behavior, and yes this can cause your prints to warp or detach from the build plate.

    The question is whether you instructed this (by accident) or not (e.g. it can be a result from slicing or some economy mode of the printer). This should be clear if you look into the G-code file that you print. The typical commands that concern bed heating are M140 and M190.

    Please note that this a generic answer to find bed heating operation in your G-code file. Other answers, e.g this one and this one hint to a specific ability of the printer that shuts off the heating of the bed when it is working in an economic mode. Note that this is printer specific.
