How to autotune Marlin Hotend/Extruder PID parameters

In order to autotune the extruder E0 hotend in Marlin, use



I always recommend to tune at whatever temperature you use most (e.g. if you want to print mostly PLA at 185°C, use S185 instead of S210 in the command). Tuning at the correct temperature will increase the accuracy of the system.

Regarding the number of cycles, C3 = 3 cycles is mostly for quick tuning. Since heating up and cooling down takes a long time, but doing many cycles increases the accuracy of the tuning. Typical values are:
