Hi, Would be nice if you could share your optimal settings for high quality prints so people can compare their results. That also helps users to get a feeling for good settings.

Settings depend on so many things it's difficult to compare between different machines and filaments used. Also, there are so many settings... but anyway, here it is:

I am using this black PLA filament and generating the code in NetFabb.

(Region, layer size, speed)

External contour: 0.04 mm, 25 mm/s.

Internal contour: 0.08 mm, 40 mm/s.

Downskin: 0.16 mm, 40 mm/s.

Upskin: 0.08 mm, 40 mm/s.

Filling: 0.16 mm, 60 mm/s, one line evely 4 mm (that's 10%).

The first layer is printed at 50% speed and no fan.

My extruder (the upgraded version) is perfectly calibrated at 844 steps/mm.

Using duble layer sizes for the filling and downskin makes it much faster to print without any external difference. But you currently can't do that in Cura.
