3D Printing tidbit 3 - Test your filament diameter

Filament diameter is a killer. If you don't test it before you print you're likely to waste a whole plate of pawns.


PS. Bonus tidbit: If you're like me and build to an SD card from replicatorG then be sure to give your S3G additional information by changing the name of the file when you save them. For me I add something like this to the end:


  • R - I built this for the right extruder. L for left, X if I've run the both extruders at once script.
  • 86 - The filament diameter's decimal value. So this was built with 1.86mm filament diameter.
  • 70 - The feed speed, or 70mm/s.
