Modifying Extruder "Steps Per Unit" Doesn't seem to work...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Modifying Extruder "Steps Per Unit" Doesn't seem to work...

Recently upgraded to some beefier steppers which also have half the step size. Default steppers run 1.8 degrees per step, my new ones run .9 degrees. I adjusted the values in configuration.h, and everything seems to do as I expected. The X, Y and Z seem to all have scaled properly. The problem is that the extruder is only putting out half the needed volume, and no matter what number I punch into the setting, it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Can someone please tell me what I am missing?

Does your start code has a M92? Because that overwrites that value.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
