Material settings export

Sun Mar 12, 2017 7:14 am

Does anyone now of any community site where people who have perfected their settings for different material and machine combinations can share their settings or Process exports?

There are great tips on the site but being new its a bit overwhelming. Im sure each setting has been compared by multiple people.
If anyone has any tips on Sainsmart TPU on Creator pro I would appriciate it.

I have used a similar TPU filament on a direct drive machine, similar to the Creator Pro. I started with the standard PLA profile and made the following changes

Retraction distance: 0.5mm
Coasting ON : 0.5mm
Wipe ON : 5mm
Retraction Speed: 600 mm/min
Default printing Speed: 1500mm/min . slow down for perimeters
Infill percentage: 40-50%
Extrusion Multiplier: 1.05

the results were good, some blobbing was there due to low retraction values. tell me how the printing goes. I am sure Sainsmart TPU is also similar to the one I was using from Alchemy i guess
