PID Autotune


See Sending G-code for more information on how to send the commands below.

M303 Run PID tuning


Hot end usage

M303 S<temperature> C<#cycles>

Example:
M303 S210 C15

Note: Change the temperature (S value) to the temperature you anticipate using.
The above command will heat the nozzle and cycle around the target temperature 15 times (C15) at the given temperature (S210) and return the average values for P, I, and D.
Proceed to M301 Set PID parameters below

Bed usage

M303 E-1 S<temperature> C<#cycle>

Example:
M303 E-1 S60 C5



M301 Set PID parameters

Enter the values received after running M303 using M301 command
Newer firmware versions set the PID values returned by Autotune automatically.
The users must store the values to EEPROM with command “M500

M301 P<Kp value> I<Ki value> D<Kd value>

Example:
M301 P20 I0.02 D250   ;Set new PID values
M500                  ;Save EEPROM
Reboot printer to complete the process

M304 Set PID parameters - Bed

Enter the values received after running M303 using M304 command

M304 P<Kp value> I<Ki value> D<Kd value>

Example:
M304 P10 I0.02 D305.4  ;Set new PID values
M500                   ;Save EEPROM
Reboot printer to complete the process
