Mk5 Temperature Settings

Here are some working temperature settings for my Mk5 Plastruder:

P: 7.0 I:0.34 D: 36.0

This produces a warmup time to 230C of around 9 minutes and temperature swings 230+8-15 (ish) for my Mk5.

I'm warming up to 230C manually, printing rafts at 235C and the rest of the part at 230C which is producing acceptable print quality.

I'd love to be able to reduce the swings drastically, since that should improve surface finish, but its far more critical that its printing reliably!
