difference between print speed and travel speed ?

I also just put in the same number into both.

    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.
