How Should I Choose Between Manual vs. Automatic Feed on the Quil?

Last Updated: Jun 01, 2017 12:59PM PDT
Like most decisions when it comes to creating art with the Quil it comes down to personal preference.

The automatic feed option will give you a continuous flow of filament which does not require you to press down the “In” button as you design. This option is great for filling in empty areas of your object or if you are working on parts that may not require high detail.

The manual feed option requires you to press the “In” button in order for the duration of your design session. This option is certainly useful when you want more control of how much filament you want to come out of your pen. We recommend this for method when creating objects that require more detail or if you just need a small amount of filament to top something off since it is easier to add small controlled pieces to finish off a design than to add too much and have to clip/sand down a completed part.
