Thin layers underextrude with Adaptive Layers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Thin layers underextrude with Adaptive Layers

Hi, using Cura 4.11 (4.12 crashes) on an ender 3 with a sKR E3 mainboard that is running a dual-gear bowden setup with a 4248 beefy extruder, currently its pushing some soft PLA+ and using a high K of 0.55. Octoprint.


I like adaptive layers. The problem is, when the layers get thin, it lowers the flow by too much a degree. I can't see a way to compensate for this scaling factor other than just hiking the global flow rate - then it overextrudes. There isn't a lot to do with AL, unlike WP which has a million settings.
