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

thanks. so this is why i'm just starting to now understand things - i'm making one change at a time and then printing ha! so yeah, calibrating esteps on xy and z seemed really crazy to me because wouldn't the mfg of the printer know that already and program that into the software?! i mean, it's visi...

how common is it to change the extrusion multiplier?

i'm beginning to understand that extrusion multiplier, esteps and temperature are really tightly related! i have done a ton of 1st layer tests, .2mm high. i started getting pretty great results with the esteps cranked up above what i had calibrated, i calibrated from default of 95 to 103, but then t...

Re: Can anybody help me with settings for first layer of a CR10S Pro?

so i was wondering about this exact thing! i have a cr10s (not pro) and it's as accurately leveled and nozzle gap set using a .06mm feeler gauge. my first layers had gaps between the lines on the brim/skirt and solid infill. perimeter outlines seemed OK. so here's the deal, i used the g-code setting...
