Optimal settings for printing in 1mm?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Optimal settings for printing in 1mm?

So I have recently come across this issue on my ender 3/ender 3 pro using Marlin 2.0.x using SKR E3 mini where very visible holes on the edges and lots of stringing have been happening. I touched up some settings with the help of another person and the before and after print looks like this. Nozzle size is again 1mm. Material is wood filament from Priline. Supports are tough to take out even at 5%


Overall Settings:

Layer Height: .2

Initial Layer Height: .25

Infill: 30

Nozzle Temp: 210

Bed: 50

Speed: 45 





Listed Below is the data I compiled with the differences in print settings between the two. If you would like to see the full excel list, it is available to download per your viewing.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
