the balance is having the layers adher to each other. which I jiggle in the m108 , speed and extrude with percentage.
I'm sure there is a clever way to figure this, but I'm not sure what it is.
I will continue to experiment. for bed leveling,
I have a heated bed.. but I have a digital 50 mm leveling prob I use for my cnc machines. I level the back left to right, then I do front to back. my bed is quite level. it is easy to test by printing a large ring and stop once the skirt is printed.
i also have crude covers to enclose the printer.
I have an alternate z sensor which i glued and cable tied. Same goes for the magnet..the small jiggle the machine has did upset the repeatability of it before I glued it.
I might try printing a detailed part. I am now getting better prints than i did with kisslicer. I really like this softwares interface.
M108 and SPEED are the correct params to fiddle with. The Multiplier does nothing, and the extrusion width should be set and left alone.
Once you find a good M108/SPEED combination for your material, write it down. This ratio should apply (except for very small areas of your print) for all speeds the machine can handle. Our CubePro, for instance, gets good results at .4mm extrusion width and .2mm layer height with a speed of 2500 and an M108 S15. If you wanted to print something slower, you should keep that ratio. (Speed of 1650 would get M108 S10)
Changing layer height would require additional adjustment to the ratio(proportional to the change in layer hight).
If placeholders and placeholder math were available in the scripts, We could create a profile to make Simplify operate more like it does with other printers (its VERY good with other printers!), but there seems to be significant resistance to add such functionality.
