Hi Bob, Two things spring to mind. Check your filament diameter with a digital caliper and check it matches the measurement entered in Slic3r. Or you could just override the feed-rate to 110% or more in the Repetier Host. The second thing is to switch to a smaller nozzle. 0.4mm or 0.35mm will produce much higher resolution prints. For reference I print almost everything with 0.25mm layer height and a 0.35mm nozzle and PLA.
Nice whistle, but I am having grief getting a non-porous structure. I have used up to 40% infill but still porous. I am using a prusa/mendel printer, Slic3r & Repentier to run it, I use a 0.50 nozzle and layer height of 25, and am using PLA 1.75.
Anyone have any suggestions? If I wrap whistle in tape to seal it it works great, but its not the solution.

Sliced with Slic3r 0.9.9
nozzle dia 0.35mm
3 layers top and bottom
0.25 (25%) fill at 45Â° with solid fill threshold set at 5 sq.mm.
The print time was 65 minutes and it took 14.7 cm3 of PLA.
That's 2.4m of 3mm filament.
