Variabililty of M92 E settings


#1

I’ve noticed that most of the posted M92 extruder steps/mm values are around 10000. However when I try to increase mine past 6000 I start to get error sounds suggesting my steps/mm value is too high.

I was wondering if there is much variability of this value from printer to printer or if I should be able to reach a higher value myself.

I have the Discov3ry hooked up to a Deltamaker printer and I am modifying the EEPROM values in the terminal of OctoPrint. Any suggestions on how I can get a higher M92 value without getting those error sounds?

Alternatively, can I just make up this difference by altering slicer settings?

Thanks,
Ben
