I'm new to this forum and hoping this is the right section to post my question.
I'm currently trying to get my head around gcode. And for the most part, I seem to understand it.
Only the 'E' parameter of the G1 command troubles me.
How is it calculated. Is there any formula?
I thought it was the amount of filament (in mm with G21 set) pushed into the nozzle.
So slice myself a simple line in slic3r and calculated it myself, to compare both values. But somehow it doesn't match even close.
I know that M82 is set and absolute distances are used and I took that into account.
Could somebody please explain to me how E works and how it's calculated.
I've searched a while for an answer to my problem, but somehow could not find one.
