Hi,

I'm wondering if it's possible to increase the E motor current further 1300 mA to get more torque on the E motor ?

What's the maximum you must not exceed ?

Thanks

    Hi,

    What printer do you have?

    The feeder on the UM2 should have enough torque already. More torque will probably end up in more filament grinding.

    Unfortunately I do not have the answer to your question.

    IIRC daid has said that Ultimaker have done experiments where they've increased the current over 1300mA but they didn't see any real improvement in strength.

    If you want to experiment you can set the current via Gcode at the top of the file. I can't quite remember the M-code at the moment but I don't know if it's worth the trouble.
