percentage of extrusion

Sun Sep 21, 2014 7:05 am

Hello to all
Using the Simplify3D with my Prusa i3 I could not see a thing
I printed while I reduced to 50% the percentage of the extruder
is from that moment on, the print quality is greatly improved ....
from where i can set the percentage of the extruder?
seeing the result of the press, and my idea to achieve
further definition printing sarebeb well set the percentage to 40% of the extruder ONLY DURING THE PRESS CAN ABBASARE UP TO 50% !!

(Attached you will find the current printer profile that still use)

I look forward to feedback on
Thank you all for your kind attention

This may be due to the filament size you're using. Makerfarm's i3 set comes with 3 mm filament, and I'm sure other ones do to whereas a majority ship with 1.75 mm filament setups. To check this, it's under the Other tab.
