I dont understand, how does the printer change the temperature based on a simple stl file ?

Hello Phil,

In fact the STL just provide the shape of the object.
You have to generate the Gcode, then to open it (with the notepad or else).

-Search for the instruction "Z10" (it will be easier with the search function)
-Add a line ABOVE this Z10
-Type in this new line M104 S### (where ### is the desired temperature)
-then proceed the same for Z20, Z30, Z40 and so on.
Save the modified file and print it.

I agree it's a bit boring to do but it's the price to pay for a nice printed surface.

BTW please find below the excellent TUTO where I learnt to do it :
