About E-step default value and its change

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I'm using a printer Wasp mod. Delta 2040 equipped with clay extruder. Also, Marlin firmware.

As reported in the firmware, the default values for X,Y,Z,E axes are:

* D e f a u l t A x i s S t e p s P e r U n i t ( s t e p s / m m ) * O v e r r i d e w i t h M 9 2 * X , Y , Z , E 0 [ , E 1 [ , E 2 [ , E 3 ] ] ] * /

#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT { 80, 80, 4000, 500 }

my questions are below: 7

1. The value 500 is on mm/min. if so, the acutal value should be 8.33 step/mm of filament in a time of 1 s.

2. If I leave on CURA software an -Estep=0 this means that i'm using the default value of the firmware that is 4000 ?

2. What's happen if i change the E-step value on CURA software for instance at +0400 ?

Can you help to explain me exactly how change the E-step when I modify it on CURA software ?

Thanks

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
