Technical Data

Adjustments

  • Speed of travel (at slicing or in g-code editor)
  • Layer thickness (at slicing)
  • Volume of flow per unit distance (at slicing or in g-code editor)
  • Extruder temperature (at slicing, in g-code editor, or manually during build) (MK-1, VOL-25)
  • Cooling Fan speed (at slicing, in g-code editor, or manually during build (MK-1, QS-1)
  • HotBed Temperature (at slicing, in g-code editor, or manually during build)

Or, is tabular better?
