difference between print speed and travel speed ?

I also just put in the same number into both.

But what is the real difference between print speed and travel speed. are they not the same thing ?

    Print speed is the speed the head moves during extruding plastic, travel speed is the speed when moving from one place to another without printing. The default travelspeed of 150mm/s is quite low for an UM, and you can use 250mm/s for travel speed.

    I've set a default of 150mm/s because it gives good results, while higher can cause missed steps when you have some mechanical issues or a bit underpowered steppers.
