PID tuning extruder

Repeat depending on:

  • physical parameters of the extruder

This step only requires to run


Multiple PID values can be saved and recalled whenever it's needed, but in general the values are not very specific: a tuning at 235 °C will be perfectly fine between 210-260 °C, maybe even more.

My hotend cannot reach more than 250 °C and a tuning at 235 °C resulted in temperatures oscillations so small that no overtemperature shutdown get triggered.

If I had a hotend up to 270 °C, I would repeat the tuning at 270 °C and I would load the values depending on the filament.
