I wantet to start this topic because I had some difficulties as a printer newbie finding the best printer settings for other filaments than the provided ones.
The specification from the manufacturers of the filaments are very wide and some of them simply don’t work because every printer is different.
What are the important points?
- Printing temperature
- Heated bed temperature
- Printing speed
- Flow (extrusion rate)
- Retraction speed/distance
What data should be provided by the participants? Pictures of a standardized test object (a cube 10x10x10mm for example)?
It will help the users that are not as ambitious as me (I can’t wait to get home from work to “play” with my printer until I go to bed) printing with other filament materials/brands.
Maybe we can collect data in this topic and create a closed list to be administered by the moderators.
