I am having trouble with my hot end not reaching the set temperature, if I set the temp to 265 it will only heat 257 and just set there until it times out. I have run a PID calibration and it has no effect, I changed thermistors and had no effect and opened a ticket up with matter hackers and no response. I know this has been a topic here and I hope someone learned enough or figured a fix.

Hot end not reaching set temperature.
First layer width
I'm having trouble with my first layer width. No matter what I set the width to it only spaces the extrude over and does not increase the extrusion rate. So if I go 150% width there will be a space between the extrude lines. to tighten the space up you have to apply 100% or less to the width. I don't know if its something I am not doing right but I am puzzled.
I need help with settings on MC, when I make a print and there is multiple top layers like stairs it will on apply the programed finish thickness on the top layer only and not the others in between. The only way to get more than 2 layers is to bridge the infill. I have researched high and low and I'm stumped on this. Can someone help me on this or point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
