Does changing Filament size or Flow rate have the same effect

Recommended Posts

Posted · Does changing Filament size or Flow rate have the same effect

I just wanted to check.. If I am using 1.75 filament, but specified the filament diameter as SMALLER this would cause over-extrusion.

But equally, if increase the flow% it would have the same effect.

Does the Fillament Diameter feature and Floew% do exactly the same job? Or are they different.

I just want to find out as I am planning to do some experiments with 'flow' to try and improve the situation I am suffering with, and I just wanted to find out whether these 2 settings basically do the same thing.
