Step 15: Slic3r (Printer Settings) - "Extruder 1"

Change settings to those shown in image. Then SAVE by clicking on the save icon.

Step 16: EEPROM Settings

The EEPROM settings are ones that affect your printer's stepper motors: so your X, Y, Z and E (extruder) motors.
These motors turn by making minuscule rotation motions or "steps".


The settings therefore control whether or not your prints are to scale or not; and also the amount of filament that gets pushed through to your hot end by your extruder.


To calibrate these settings you must print a to-scale calibration object (like a rectangular cube, or calibration steps) and measure how each axis performs. If, say, you are printing a "40mm cube" and the x-axis side is a couple millimeters too large - you must decrease the "Steps per mm" under "X:".
OR if the extruder motor is either extruding too much filament (resulting in big blobs) or too little filament (resulting in too thin lines and flaws) you have to adjust your "E" motor steps per mm accordingly.


Hopefully the settings I have configured will work for all :) For me they render a perfectly in scale, smooth-sided cube.

IMPORTANT: to access the EEPROM settings you must have your printer connected - with NO commands waiting.

Step 17: EEPROM Settings Configured

Change settings to those shown in image. Then SAVE by clicking on the save to EEPROM button below.

    I was given this link by Naomi from Robosavvy UK. However this does not appear to include the G29 code that I think Auto-Level Probe Simple's need.
    I have the 1405, and this is not a complete guide, I'm sorry to have to say.

    Hi Damian,

    This was posted all the way back in January 2014; and was an instructable for the old legacy model 2013 Printrbot (with no auto level probe). I made a new one for the Printrbot Simple metal, unfortunately none for the Maker's edition, but they'll be pretty much the same.. Hope you are well!
