Re: question on temperatures

sure - and by calibrated we're talking two things really - 1 esteps and 2 the wall-width calibration to set extrusion multiplier the big picture i guess is: a) temperature, b) speed, and c) extrusion multiplier are all intricately tied? or no, you're saying i can take extrusion multiplier out of tha...

Re: question on temperatures

thanks. ultimately i'm trying to address two issues: 1 stringing and 2 uneven layer stacking. i did several prints of a little rectangle with 2 circular posts (about 1/8in diameter, 1.25in tall). i ended up printing this "stringing test" object and getting darn good results not only with stringing b...

question on temperatures

i've noticed that when printing different temps to find the sweet spot, the gloss changes on the printed filament. if i go to say 210C, it's glossier than 200C. could this be one factor in figuring out correct temperatures? also, if you print "too low" temperature, can that lead to clogging? i suppo...

Re: how common is it to change the extrusion multiplier?

interesting good read! thanks. you're right, i never thought of it from the approach of using these little settings in the software to overcome or even out, the variables. i did end up setting my esteps back to factory but will re-calibrate now to eliminate as many variable as i can.

Re: Problem with Extrusion width

hm. this seems odd. i was able to successfully do mine with .4mm nozzle setting, .4mm extrusion width and then i was able to change from the default of 0.9 extrusion multiplier (for my printer) until i got a fairly accurate TWO wall cube printed with 3 bottom layers and 2 walls. i would get .81 or ....

brim / skirt from part not ooze shield

hello, 1. i noticed if i use an ooze shield, my brim or skirt of 10 lines only applies to the ooze shield and not the model within the ooze shield. is that normal or can that be something for a future release? (edit, the idea being the brim/skirt helps the model adhere to the bed, but in this case i...

printing over usb vs sd card

just wanted to ask... back when i used cura, i would have sworn that prints from usb were not as good as printing from the sd card. but it was always one of those things i couldn't prove. i discovered that all on my own and thought it about it for at least 2 months before looking at the internet ha!...

Re: how common is it to change the extrusion multiplier?

thanks. good read. so i'm all set for multiplier and actual extrusion width. unfortunately i'm getting some major layer shifting and banding. something came loose - a belt or whatever, so time to revisit that. otherwise, the layers that are printing now before i get all the layer shifting are lookin...

user interface color opactity in preview/live preview

hello, could you make the colored squares that shows for example, print speed, in the live preview/preview mode opactiy = 100% some colors blend with the grey of the build plate in the preview - anyway, overall the colors would be more readable without transparency like they are in the actual lines ...
