Initial Layer Flow Not Working


Recommended Posts

Posted · Initial Layer Flow Not Working

I'm not sure what my problem is but after a few rounds of tuning I can't seem to get my Initial Layer Flow setting to function.


After printing a calibration test I found I had to reduce my flow to 84% and now get great prints however the "brim" on my first layer comes out a little stringy and separated, so I went to up my "Initial Layer Flow "back to 100% and was surprised to discover it was already at 100. Slightly concerned I thought the value may represent a 'change' from the standard flow (though must admit I thought it unlikely). In any event I tried changing to 120% but can't see any change to the printing.


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
