Extrusion Width Percentage

Postby jvingaard » Mon Mar 25, 2019 6:45 pm

Is it possible to make a purge line extrusion width percentage 200%
and after printing, return to default extrusion width,

{extrusion width percentage} = 200%
G1 Y5 X5 Z0.18 F500.0 ;Move to position
G1 X60 E9 F500.0 ;Start purge line
G1 X150 E12.5 F500.0 ;Finish purge line
{extrusion width percentage} = Defaut

Can't find any way to do that, but maybe someone else know how to get around that?

The extrusion width is mainly affected by extrusion amount. If you want to change the extrusion width, you can measure the extrusion width printed by the original Start Gcode. And compare the difference with the extrusion width you need. Then multiply the factor with the E value.
But if the extrusion width is a lot larger than the nozzle size, the final result will not be even and accurate.
