In another thread we were discussing Esteps and how the calibration process for me yields a number that results in over extrusion.
So last night I manually extruded (in air not on the bed) some ABS filament and measured its diameter. My nozzle is marked .35 but the filament extruded measured an average of .47mm after it’s cool.
Is this normal? Or should it be closer to .35mm? Perhaps the plastic expands after it leaves the nozzle. But would it expand that much?
Perhaps people with .35mm and .5mm can run that test and report their findings?
If my nozzle is mismarked it might explain why my Esteps calibration results in over extruded parts?
