Hello, would like to first off say I love my lulzbot! Great work with it.
I’ve been messing with my printer for a week or so now however I seem to be having issues calibrating it further, there a ton of material on the web in regards to slic3r settings and what not but I haven’t really found and understood some general rules of thumb. I been reading about printers for a few months before I bought mine however being visually impaired I found it a lot more difficult to operate than expected. Was hoping someone can help me with a few basic noob questions.
Is there a set mm height that I can use to adjust the tip from the bed? I’m having difficulty with the bed calibration gcode process for some reason and “eyeing” the results to see if the extrusion is “flat enough”
With the .5 tip, how small of a layer height can I get? I’ve used it for .25 layer height with fair results, but is there a rule of thumb for how small to go? Same for a .25 tip.
I seem to be having trouble with actual size with my abs prints. Im scaling the parts 1% more to compensate for shrinkage but still can’t seem to get what I’m looking for when printing NPT male pipe fittings thread.
The printer operates in mm right? So would it be best to design in mm? Slic3r handles everything if I design in inches?
Thanks in advanced for any and all support!
