Half of the 3d printing Hobby…

is tweaking your printer for optimal functionality!  Sorry it’s been taking a while to post!  Since I have been testing a new software update for Hyrel, my Simplify3d settings that were working well before will now require some reconfiguration.

Now that Hyrel’s printers take acceleration into account, I am getting severe overextrusion, amongst a few other issues…. A few things I’m going to try to mitigate this are:

1.) increasing printing speed

2.) decreasing flow rate

look forward to most posts where I tweak simplify3d settings in the coming weeks!
