*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
*) Large Centaur PP prints can be printed on an unheated 2mm or 3mm PP plate, which can be attached to the print bed. Smaller prints can be printed on standard PP packaging tape.
