Skeinforge Build Parameters

The extrusion settings, more or less, kinda-sorta, for the latest objects:

  • Layer thickness 0.33 mm
  • Perimeter w/t = 1.75 = 0.58 mm
  • Fill w/t = 1.65 (or as needed)
  • Feed 40 mm/s
  • Flow 2 rev/min with geared stepper
  • Perimeter feed/flow 75% of normal (probably not needed)
  • First layer at 20% of normal feed & flow
  • 210 °C (some at 220 °C) Thermal Core
  • 120 °C build platform (lower at plate surface)
  • Reversal: 20 rev/min, 90 ms reverse & push-back (lower better?)
  • Fill: 2 extra shells, 3 solid surface layers, 0.25 solidity, 0.3 overlap
  • Thread sequence: Loops / perimeter / infill
  • Cool: slow down, minimum 15 sec/layer
  • Bottom / splodge / stretch disabled

Wouldn’t it be great if you could export all that stuff to a text file in a readable format? The CSV files come close, but they’re not really meant for human consumption.

Subject to revision, your mileage may vary, past performance is no indication of future yield, perfectly safe when used exactly as directed, shake before using, don’t touch that dial!
