Comprensive 3d printer tweaking guide?

  • Hi all.
    I am not a very old and experienced 3d printer user,but during this 4 years , from the time I bought my first 3d printer, many things are changed.
    When I started ,calibrating the step per unit and feed rate was te only and more "complicated "things to tweak for improve 3d printing quality and precision.
    Now , we have a lot of stuff to play with ( pressure advance , jerk, ecc..). and I am quite overwhelmed form all this options.
    Would be great to build a "complete guide to 3d printer calibration" collecting in a single place all suggestions and procedures spreaded in this forum and all over the internet.
    Is there someone with time and knowledge able to start something like this ?
    What do you think?

    I've been working on a guide off and on for a little while now. I hope to have it out... eventually.

    It's difficult, (as you've noticed) because there are so many variables and so many of them are interrelated. It's hard to tweak and tune things in isolation. Many limits can be derived from formulas and the mechanical characteristics of the printer, and there are many rules of thumb to follow. Add in all the slicer options and soon you realize you could write a book on it and wouldn't cover all cases.
