    I don't think that the right lower button can be used if the print nozzle is fitted as it is trying to push too much filament in a short time. I have used that control while I had my extruder nozzle off and of course the filament comes out quite fast. No heat on of course. I would only use the left lower button with the nozzle fitted and heated to 195+ degrees.
    As your extrusion rate is very close we need to look at some other reasons for your extruded filament is not melting together correctly as shown in the round feet on the basket? Have you cross checked the recommended settings in Repetier and Cura that were sent out from Rapide?

    Did you measure the amount of filament extruded or the amount of filament taken into the extruder?
    If you hear clicking noises coming from the extruder then it sounds like the drive wheel may be slipping and lead to under extrusion. You may have to strip the extruder and check if you have the screw trying to bite onto a round shaft as this has happened several times already.
