Hello, apologies for the lack of clarity.
Regarding “printing 1mm” I mean a 1mm nozzle orifice.
As far as Extruder, it is an MK8 with a recent upgrade to make it direct drive via a direct drive kit.
Okay, that one should put out more torque, using a way smaller gear. Still don't understand how that one's got
converted to a direct drive, though. So it's no longer mounted to the frame and it's feeding directly to the hotend
without a bowden in between now?
Regarding printing media, yes it is PLA from PrintedSolid which is rated up to 230c for smaller nozzle orifices and has been suggested to use up to 270 when printing using a 1mm nozzle orifice. Any lower and the temp cannot heat the filament thoroughly enough to bond to the previous layer.
Is it PS "Jessie" PLA? According to the linked data sheet they're using NatureWorks 4043D (Ingeo biopolymer) and the
Decomposition temperature is 250°C (9. Phys./chem. properties):

As far as factory files, I’m not sure where to find those. I can provide S3D profile files, but not sure where or what factory files are.
Oh, that one's easy.
File -> Save factory file...
This will save the current models, processes and their settings in a single file. So other people can have a look at the settings used,
like nozzle size, extrusion width, layer height and so on
