sorry for the newbie question but when the same settings are in both the config.g and slicer then which overrules the other?
I realise that in an ideal world there will be no conflict but as an ignorant newbie I can see myself making mistakes and also it would be nice not to have to reslice a print job any time I change the machine setting which at the moment is every print as I learn what the limitatons and best configuration are.
so I have noticed that items like acceleration, jerk, max speed, fan control etc are all available in Cura when slicing and I had rather assumed that the settings in config.g would be the machine settings but since its all Gcode what happens when they conflict?
say I set acceleration to 100 and jerk to 10 for the X axis in my config.g but the settings in Cura are acceleration 500 jerk 30 for the X axis on a print that I slice.....
which are used?
sorry if this is really obvious but it seems like the gonfig.g would be bypassed by a slicer command unless there is some logic to compare the model Gcode to the config and go from there with the most appropriate setting - not sure how that would be achieved.
I guess what I am really after is what's the best practice - do I get the machine tuned by working with the Config.g file or do I set realistic maximums into the config.g and then tune in Cura?
The more I think about this I think I have been trying to do this the wrong way and I need to do the tuning in the slicer as different filaments, nozzles and model types may all need slightly different settings.
so what is the correct way?
