Hey guys I really need some help. I have gone through the CURA software and set the speed, temps, Flowrate, thickness, ect....... And when I load the Gcode into the printer it is not showing the values I put in the settings boxes in CURA. The Gcode is bare I think......For example does anyone see the Flowrate on there???? I set it to 104 but the printer shows 100 when i load the gcode......Any explainations would be greatly appreciated!!!

You see: FR 100 on the LCD, because it is the speed setting, not the flow rate.

To see the flow rate you have to navigate to the submenu, where in_print adjustment takes place.

Ok well how do I go about finding out if the flowrate actually changed to the setting I used in Cura when I exported the Gcode???

You could slice it twice with a flow rate of 100 and 104% and compare the Exxxxx values in the Gcode.

When you set the flow 10 104% in cura, it will tell the extruder to move farther the calculated amount. For example, it set at 100%, the extruder will move to 100mm at a certain point in the print. If set to 104%, the extruder will have extruded 104mm to the same point in the print.
If you are printing from SD, you can tune the machine as it is printing without changing the gcode. In this case, the gcode will command 100mm, but the steps er mm will change, to the machine will actuall extrude 104mm when it thinks 100.
One way to use this, is to change the percentage while it is printing and when you find a value that works best, you will then know the setting to use in cura.
