This page documents the steps that need to be taken to get your printer dialled in and calibrated for high-quality printing. It describes the most important steps, the things that you'll definitely need to do if you want to get good results - but there's a lot more info out there on the topic of calibration, and this guide can't cover it all. Check the Resources section to see other guides on the topic.
- Heat up HotEnd
- Measure and mark filament 90, 100 and 110mm from entry to extruder
- Request 100mm extrude
- Check actual extruded distance against marks
new_e_steps = old_e_steps * (100 / distance_actually_moved)
- Update printer with values by GCODE
- Repeat process until error is acceptable
