Re: Auto vs Manual extrusion width

For the gaps, try increasing the extrusion multiplier

For the small features not being included in slicing, that is due to the S3D works right now. They have explained that in the Print quality guide.

Re: Move to Start print in XYZ simultaniously

I am guessing the diff is probably in the starting script. Post both the scripts here and if possible a video that shows what it is currently doing. Skipping the binder clip is very easy to do. After Home all, you can raise the Z to a certain height skip ahead and then let it start the print.

Re: Auto vs Manual extrusion width

From my personal exp, Setting 0.4 width for 0.4 nozzle size works fine. However, if you see too much overlap between the roads of plastic, you can turn up the width to 0.48. Setting it to auto does not really do anything except do the 1.2x automatically when you change nozzle size.

Re: models with lots of rounded shapes, not corners

With models that have lots of curves and rounded shapes, would it be better to use corkscrew mode? If so, I take it that you aren't able to do any infill, so your walls would need to be thicker to help with strength of the model? Post the link to the model or factory file. It will help to provide s...

Re: Sharing settings between profiles

Short Answer: No Long answer: if you are interested, you can open up the fff profile, which is basically an xml file. Each material config is like a section there, so, instead of having multiple profiles, you can just insert multiple sections here so that all the materials are configured in the same...

Re: Small blob on X and Y axis.

Honestly, they are more of bumps than blobs. Can you post the link to the original model, this will help to know how the model is supposed to look like. I am not quite sure if those dents are a part of the original model. My first guess would be overextrusion or overheating. Check out the print qual...

Re: Top layers issues

This is a common quality issue called pillowing. Since you are printing with PLA, it is likely to happen if there is insufficient cooling. Make your your cooling fan is turned on to 100%. This also depends on the printer's cooling fan setup. For eg. the Ultimaker probably has one of the best cooling...

Re: Heads up re Makeprintable.com

Are these dimensional errors random or uniform ?

Thanks for the info. I wouldn't run functional parts/assemblies through their website. But for most other cases like display pieces, it is still a good alternative.
