    On ABS:
    I have the E3D V5 but I wanted to check and see if anyone could provide their slic3r settings for this hotend running a .4mm nozzle.
    I am looking for the layer heights and the Advanced / Extrusion Widths. I am running into a few issues where there are clear gaps between lines on a flat solid surface, I changed some of the settings but still haven't gotten it to much better.

    On T-Glase:
    I am looking for a full Slic3r config for this material, I know some of it will always be different per machine but it's a good starting point to get the Advanced settings and what they are using for the filament settings. I know Taulman wants to put .5 in versus .4, they also recommend some other settings that are different and I'm trying to test it with this hotend.

    The only settings that are really HotEnd specific is the nozzle size which you say you have correct. Other things like layer heights and infill settings concern the mechanical properties of the prints.

    The gaps that you say you are getting on a solid surface sound like a problem with your ESteps/mm or filament diameter.

    Can you do 2 tests for me:
    • Measure how much filament actually goes through your extruder when you ask the printer to extrude say 10cm of filament
    • Measure the diameter of your filament at a few different locations along it's length compared with your slic3r config
    Let us know what your results are - and we can go from there. Also a bit more info about your printer would be handy! :)
