RepRapPro Mendel (part 5)

The generic ABS profile doesn't work for the RepRapPro Mendel and I've been asked to share the profile I've made. It's not perfect, but it's a good starting point.

My basic ABS profile starts with the Mendel-PLA-05-03 profile as a base. The following screenshots will show changes that I've made. You'll have to just compare them and make the appropriate changes.


I've had relative good results with both .4 and .3 layer heights.


Activate cool with a minor adjustment.


Keep in mind that Filament Diameter must reflect your own. My 1.75mm filament averages to about 1.68mm.


It's recommended to keep the Infill Width over Thickness (ratio) the same as the Edge width over Height (ratio) as in Carve.


Some relavent changes in this profile.


Quite a few alterations on this one.

Here are 2 examples that I printed with exactly these settings with a hotend temp set at 230 c. degrees.
