From SFACT to Skeinforge50 Extrusion on the run.

From SFACT to Skeinforge50 Extrusion on the run.
June 12, 2013 07:49AM
I used SFACT with great succes, my mendel90 was delivering nice prints.
Yesterday i tried to switch over to skeinforge50, so i carefully set all the settings (by hand) from SFACT to skeinforge50. It all looks fine, exept that the extrunsion is way to much. E values of 4 seen, where i expect values around E0.2.

Is there some setting i completely overlooked? Or needs skeinforge50 a complete recalibration?

I have the following settings (copied from my SFACT):
Dimension:
filament diameter: 2.95
Filament packing density: 1.14

Speed:
Feed rate mm/s: 60
Flow Rate Setting (this is not available in SFACT):
- Default 210, results very high E values.
- As in manual, 60, results in value as described above
- 0.5, beter but still to high E values.

I use Nopheads Mendel90 with Marlin firmware and stepper extruder.

You cant use SFACT settings in Skeinforge. SFACT calculates many things internally.. So dont do it. use the latest one from github. It should be SF50 based.

If you want to use Skeinforge50 the settings for it are provided with the kit. Are you sure you selected relative extrusion as 4mm would be a lot of filament.

thanks for you response
@ahmetcemturan, I am aware of that, therefore i manually typed over my settings like filament diameter, filement packing density and speed.

@ nophead: I use absolute extrusion, but i get values as below, and yes i have a lot of extrusion, thats the problem smiling smiley:

The extrusion volume in SF is calculated from the filament diameter but the feed rate and flow rate multipliers on the speed tab affect it. You have to keep them both the same.

I put both feedrate and flowrate on the default value of 16.
In Dimension i have the following settings:
filament diameter: 2.95
Filament packing density: 1.14

If i slice the 20mm cube i get the Gcode below.
The first part must familiar for Nophead, but an extrusion of 31.88mm for only the skirt is maybe to much.

It doesn't matter what value you have for feed rate and flow rate as long as they are both the same and the first layer and perimeter multipliers should have feed and flow the same, or nearly the same.

I attached screenshots with my settings.
Is there anything else which can make such a difference in e values? Maybe i completely overlook things.

You have your flow rate multipliers 2.5 times bigger than the feed rate multipliers so you should get 2.5 times too much filament on the first layer and 6.25 times too much on the first layer outline. The feed and flow multipliers need to be the same to keep flow in sync with feed.

Nophead,
Thank you very much. I put all the values to 1 now and the results look much better.
I assume that the base flow rate multiplierr is also involved in this.
Flow rate * first layer flow rate multiplier * base flow rate multiplier.

If you have them all at 1 then outlines and infill will be the same speed. It is more normal to have them all at something like 0.5 so outlines are half the speed of infill and first layer is half of that.

The base parameters are in raft and refer to the bottom layer of the raft I think. Regardless, whatever you modify feed rate by you need to modify flow rate by the same fact to keep them in sync.
