3D Printing Extrusion Width

A Note on Part Dimensions. The dimensional accuracy for printed parts is almost entirely determined by the extrusion width. The outermost line of the outline parameter is moved inwards by half the extrusion width 3D Printing Extrusion Width value on either side of the print

Thank you for the suggestions. So I did not see the extrusion width variable in Cura’s output gcode so the 0.44 mm first layer width was a calculated value by looking at the gcode finding two parallel lines and adjacent loop segments, comparing the coordinates, etc to make the calculation 3D Printing Extrusion Width

Personally, I like to manually set the extrusion width to something that makes modelling easier. If you set the extrusion width to 0.5mm with a 0.25mm layer height (WOH of 2.0), making parts with features divisible by 0.5mm works out great, the math is simple and parts are stronger

I’ve been printing for about a week now and I’ve always set my line width to the nozzle size, 0.4mm because that seemed logical. I believe I’m having some under-extrusion issues though. I just read a comment on thingiverse that says

Just playing around with math, if I set the nozzle diameter to .35mm (.096 mm^2 area), the extrusion width to .4 and the layer height to .24 (.4 x .24 = .096mm^2) I get an equivalent area of material through the nozzle per millimeter as laid on the print in a millimeter of distance travelled

Support material – As with the infill options, a thicker extrusion will speed up print time. It is important to remember that if the extrusion width is expressed as a percentage then this is computed from the Layer height property, and not the Default extrusion width setting 3D Printing Extrusion Width

For the purposes of this tutorial my 3D Printer nozzle size is 0.58mm and the selected layer height is 0.2mm – I have previously tuned the top solid and first layer extrusion width. I also leave others to default ‘0’ (automatic) settings.

Print Quality Troubleshooting Guide. This guide is a great place to start if you are trying to improve the quality of your 3D printed parts. We have compiled an extensive list of the most common 3D printingissues along with the software settings that you can use to solve them

This guide is for users that want to properly calibrate extrusion in Simplify 3D using a 0.4mm nozzle width and PLA filament … Configuring 3D Printer Print Servers for monitoring and control over the Internet. … Extrusion width calibration using Simplify 3D

I want to share a little experiment I did and see if I can tap the wisdom of the crowd here to better understand the results. I ran mechanical tests on 3D printed specimens with various extrusion widths to determine the effect that it would have on printed part strength 3D Printing Extrusion Width

I am using simplify3d and noticed for the Da Vinci they have the default extrusion widthset to .4mm. When trying to print something at 4mm, I had to use the ‘auto’ default extrusion widthwhich set it to .48mm. Since then I did some research and understand your extrusion width needs to be 1.2 times your layer height

3D Printing Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for 3D printing enthusiasts. Join them; it only takes a minute: … This answer on that question addresses a phenomenon called die swell to explain that the extrusion width is generally larger than the nozzle diameter even if the line width in the slicer is set to the nozzle diameter

Flow rate combines the variables extrusion width, layer height and print speed into a single variable that is far easier to think about in terms of your printer‘s abilities. This calculator primarily tailors to E3D users, but the flow rate and extruder speed results are useful to all 3D printer users 3D Printing Extrusion Width
