CuraLE 3.2.32 / 1.1.9.28 FW / Linear Advance

Post by b-morgan » Wed Dec 26, 2018 11:25 am

From the release notes for CuraLE 3.2.32:
The K-factor Calibration Pattern has a lot of parameters to tweak some of which are easy and some of which are hard (i.e. I don't know what the answers should be). I believe it would be extremely valuable if we could get some expert guidance (or even some "worked for me" examples) for each of the LulzBot printers. The comments at the beginning of the generated G-code would make a good template. For example, here's what I got when adjusting the "easy" parameters for the TAZ 6 (with PLA):

Code: Select all

; Settings Printer:
; Filament Diameter = 2.85 mm
; Nozzle Diameter = 0.5 mm
; Nozzle Temperature = 205 °C
; Bed Temperature = 60 °C
; Retraction Distance = 1 mm
; Layer Height = 0.2 mm
; Z-axis Offset = 0 mm
;
; Settings Print Bed:
; Bed Shape = Rect
; Bed Size X = 280 mm
; Bed Size Y = 280 mm
; Origin Bed Center = false
;
; Settings Speed:
; Slow Printing Speed = 1200 mm/min
; Fast Printing Speed = 4200 mm/min
; Movement Speed = 7200 mm/min
; Retract Speed = 1800 mm/min
; Printing Acceleration = 500 mm/s^2
; Jerk X-axis =  firmware default
; Jerk Y-axis =  firmware default
; Jerk Z-axis =  firmware default
; Jerk Extruder =  firmware default
;
; Settings Pattern:
; Linear Advance Version = 1.5
; Starting Value Factor = 0
; Ending Value Factor = 2
; Factor Stepping = 0.2
; Test Line Spacing = 5 mm
; Test Line Length Slow = 20 mm
; Test Line Length Fast = 40 mm
; Print Pattern = Standard
; Print Frame = false
; Number Lines = true
; Print Size X = 98 mm
; Print Size Y = 75 mm
; Print Rotation = 0 degree
;
; Settings Advance:
; Nozzle / Line Ratio = 1.2

; Dwell Time = 2 s
;
What I need help on is the "Settings Speeds" section and "Settings Advance" section.

I'd like to second that request. It would be nice to actually use Linear Advance, and without the K calibration pattern, you can't.
