What is the material extruder speed?

Recommended Posts

Posted · What is the material extruder speed?

Hi,

I would like to fill a hole with filament by pausing the printhead and leaving it to extrude material in the same place.
For this it would be very helpful to know how fast the material extruder feeds the material, but I am struggling to find this on the forum. It is always related to speed, but I don't want to move.

I am using the following code as an initial exploration:

 

G4 S20.0 E89.9

 

89.9mm is the lenght a 0.4 nozzle should extrude to fill the volume of the hole.  I need to know how long I should actually pause (20sec is random), hence the question about how fast the extruder feeds the material by a flow of 100%.
