Hello everyone. I own an ultimaker extended 2+ and recently bought glow fill,wood fill and brass fill. What are the settings that I should be following to get the best quality prints out of those? Also do you know the normal retraction settings for the printer for pla? Please do let me know :)

    Hi, for pla I would just start with the basic settings you can get from cura, it's a good starting point. To tune them that really depends on what you want to print.

    Brass, glow filaments are 'abrasive' so your nozzle will get eroded over time.

    Wood filament might require a bigger nozzle than 0.4 so to avoid clogs start with the 0.6 nozzle.

    Settings for that filaments highly depends on a lot of factors, specifically the speed and layer height you want to use.

    As a general rule you should get the filament makers suggested temperature and try a small print at a safe 40-50mm/s print speed. Then you start to tune temperature/speed until you get the quality (or print time) that you need.

    It's really impossible to suggest setting without knowing the speed, kind of objects or many other details so I would just print something, and if you don't like the results post good photos ofthe problem and we will try to give you a hand as well as we can.
