Help Produce a Database of Optimised Profiles for Modified and Novel Filaments.

Please do not use this thread for general discussion or "help" requests. Only for listing Filament profile information. Read post before posting.
Mods - if we could get some oversight to curate comments, I think this can be a very useful thread. Is there a way to make a post editable long term so I can collate lists into my header/top posts?

Purpose:  Publish detailed filament profiles, and user generated profiles to enable optimised print outcomes, and investigation/comparison of filament parameters.

Modified variations of filament between brands are increasingly common; While generic profiles may be "ok", optimised profiles achieve greatly improved outcomes.

This thread, In the absence of a dedicated section can be a central repository of data for any brand or filament.

There is no curated library I am aware of and the bulk of 'net discussion is a mess full of disorganised remarks. There is no dedicated section on this forum for such a discussion - so I decided to start it here.

 

Present Data by:
1. A link to detailed manufacturer print settings such as eSun Have here: eSUN-Fast-filaments-print-parameters2.pdf . NO links to general discussion threads.

Or

2. A database entry using the below template I have constructed (please keep as close as possible to it and be detailed).


 
Again, Please don't make general posts about the thread - only what is described at 1, or 2. To be useful, the thread to remain free of waffle. 

 

Use the below template if not linking manufacturer data or an established profile.

Printer (incl MMU):
Nozzle type/size:

Filament Brand, Type & Colour: eg. eSun PLA (META) Red

Calibration/tests performed: eg Nil, Temp Tower, Bridging, Overhangs, "general printing"  

Printer: Enclosure: Yes/No.   Open/Closed.  Active heating Yes/No

Ambient Temp: (If no enclosure and known)

Default Profile used: Which profile you modified. eg. eSun PLA.

Printer Settings altered from base profile: List here all Printer and Filament settings modified to achieve your optimised profile. Do not include "model specific" changes. 

Remarks: Improvements vs default. Colour variances. Was your filament Dried? Required changes for types of models, supports etc.
Comparison images (please keep them sensibly scaled in size relative to the page).

eSun Filaments, excluding some newer variants. Covers multiple printers and seems very complete .

eSun Filament data for Profiles, by printer and filament.

I'll attach profile files later as I get them produced.

While this is a good idea, a table would be more appropriate than searching through a thread. Something along the lines of this; https://help.prusa3d.com/materials.

Do moderators have the ability to build something like this in the forums?
