Printer Profile Updates

Mon Jun 26, 2017 1:23 pm

How often does S3D update the printer profiles for each printer or do they even update them at all as new better settings are discovered.

I know we can modify the stock profiles provided. Just curious if they update or enhance them with the software updates.

They've updated the profiles for a few of my printers 3 or 4 times in the past, so it definitely happens. I'm sure it varies though, since some of the printers may have been easier to calibrate than others.

I have seen this happen once with the Robo3D R1 plus. So, I know they update profiles.
Since I print with different brands of filaments, I almost always fine tune the settings based on their stock, which is a great starting point
