Playing with the temperature of the PLA

I noticed that many of the captured G-code items downloaded from the internet generally lay down the plastic at 230C as opposed to the PLA setting of 220C. I have tried the code at both settings and found that the 220C suggested for PLA makes a rougher exterior than the 230C setting in the G code. It also causes some separation of the layers. Is the suggested 220C (PLA suggested temperature 195-220 °C ) a viable setting to produce good results, and is there a problem with driving the higher temperature?

Hey I made a tutorial on finding the correct temperature on PLA. Might be interesting for you if you are experimenting.

Very good information and G files, thanks it will save me a lot of tinkering.
