Left & Right Filament Flowrate Override isn't

Postby twiget » Wed Mar 01, 2023 5:24 pm

I'm trying to calibrate the filament flow through each extruder, so I printed the standard single wall hollow cube on both extruders (in duplication mode) and measured the wall thicknesses. Both cubes measured 0.44mm all the way around, so I crunched some numbers and I updated the Left and Right Filament Flowrate override settings in the Advanced tab of Ideamaker and printed the cubes again with the new settings. Again I got 0.44mm wall thickness. Layer height is 0.2mm and shells is 1.0 and infill is at 0%.

All the various flow rates are set at 100% and according to the tool tip, this override should control all the those flowrates in Ideamaker. How do I adjust the flow rates? I need to print some print in place objects and this over extrusion is gluing the moving parts together.

Can you share the version of ideaMaker you are using and screenshots of before and after the values modified and not updated with us?

Thank you!
