Here are my settings for Repetier 1.6.1. I have used these settings through all the versions over the past year on my DaVinci 1.0 3D printer. Repetier is a powerful aftermarket software used to control the printer. It voids the warranty and if used wrong could damage things. Use at your own risk!
With these settings it produces dimensional accurate ABS prints of a 10x10mm cube to within .01mm variation. I use ABS/Acetone slurry as a base because it always holds, but PEI sheet + 3M 468MP looks like what I am going to switch to for ease of use.
Blue, green and black – Hatchbox ABS 1.75mm $21-23 a kilogram, always prints well.
Magenta = Jet ABS 1.75mm $10-20 a kilogram, seems to print just as well. Also marketed as American Instrument and Distenex (PLA). But my spools all have stickers that say “Siridi (Wuhan)“.

I use 100% fill if I need either strength or dimensional accuracy. Otherwise I have other settings down to 15% depending on what your model needs. Here I also have rectilinear selected, but honeycomb is also good. Adjust as needed.
Sometimes I use brim if I am printing a tall model that needs more stick so it doesn’t fall over during printing. Brim can also prevent warping of a long object. I don’t use skirt.support is selected here, but your model may not need it. The tanks in the pics above used support.
