    Hello,

    I own a Anet A8 which I modified a bit. I replaced the Display with a full graphic LCD, added auto bed leveling and changed to the Skynet3d firmware which is a moded Marlin firmware especially for Anet printers
    The last thing I did was changing the extruder and hotend to the mentioned Prusa i3 Upgrade Kit.
    I now can print faster and with better quality.
    But I have a problem: If I print the 20mm hollow test cube the walls are not connected to each other and it's very
    fragile.
    Is it possible that the changes documented in the e3d wiki you must do in the firmware http://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/Titan_Prusai3#For_the_Extruder. are wrong? You call 456 as steps /mm.
    If you take a look at http://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/Titan_Assembly#Firmware_Calibration
    there you call 418,5 steps/mm
    Thanks Andy

    Thank you. How do I know how many Steps/Microsteps the motor has?
    As I said, I bought the e3d i3 Upgrade Kit maybe 2 weeks ago.

    On the LCD, under motion, scroll to the bottom and it will say E-Steps. If you have no LCD send M503 via terminal.

    It will probably be 200 steps. You can try looking for the model number on the motor.
