    Extruder loses temperature when print starts

    Hello,

    I teach English at an Engineering University in France. I have to teach a course on the basics of 3D printing (in English, I don't have to go into depth), so my school bought me a Colido DIY to use at home so that I can get to know the subject. Everything is set up, my bed is level, my first print turned out perfect. Every print since, the extruder reaches temperature, the job starts and within 30 seconds the temperature drops and the print turns to crap.

    Does anyone have an idea what's going on?

    Thanks

    Additional info.

    I have successfully printed another file. There don't seem to be any problems when I use one of the stock files that comes with the printer. The problems come with trying something from Thingiverse.

    I think I've figured it out. I looked at the G-Code and noticed that there was a line telling the extruder to drop the temperature. I erased that line and it's working just fine.
