*) 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 types of printers, hot-ends, and printer offset that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.

*)  If you use a vanadium steel / hardened steel and/or tungsten carbide nozzle then please raise the printing temperature up to 240 - 245° C to maintain the high gloss. If you still have trouble losing the shine, you can drop the part cooling fan to 50% or lower. For brass and copper nozzles you can print at215 - 225° C. Please do feel free to experiment with these settings.
