The setting values are created under the following assumptions:

Explanation of the table columns:

  • Sensor Distance: Distance between nozzle and point where the filament touches the sensor.
  • Fan Distance: Distance between the nozzle and the top of the fan.
  • Fan Power: Fan setting 0-99%.
  • Hole: Hole size in the nozzle in mm.
  • Weight: Attached weight to sensor in form of washers (M5).
  • Result: Fillet diameter in mm determined by digital caliper.
