Cura Extrusion Multiplier: 5 Ways to Improve Your Printsfleeting
- External reference: https://all3dp.com/2/extrusion-multiplier-cura-ways-to-improve-your-prints/
extrusion multiplier, which is called “flow rate” in Ultimaker’s Cura, specifies the rate at which your printer will extrude material
default, the flow rate is 100%, however not all 3D printers or filaments are created equal. You may need to adjust this value to print successfully with your specific machine and materials. Most materials use a flow rate between 90% and 110%, but you can increase this value above or below these percentages.
experiencing under-extrusion in your prints, try increasing the setting by 5% increments until you see some improvement
Sometimes under-extrusion can be caused by low print temperature, fast print speeds, or clogged nozzles. If you increase flow rate to over 115% with no improvement in your prints, you should revert to other fixes.
Layer delamination is a pesky 3D printing issue, but proper calibration of flow rate in Cura can be an easy fix.
To improve print bed adhesion, you can try increasing flow rate in 5% increments
Increasing flow rate too much can result in over-extrusion and nozzle clogging.
Just know that you shouldn’t rely completely on flow rate. Sometimes under-extrusion can be caused by a low print temperature, too-fast print speed, or a clogged nozzle. If you increase the flow rate to over 115% with no improvement in your prints, you should revert to other fixes.
