Cura Layer Settings

Recommended Posts

At this moment I am trying to find out what the ultimaker 2 is capable off by printing various objects with huge overhangs without support. And I would really like to be able to change the settings in cura per layer.

For example when I have a print that is 400 layers in height I would like to change the speed and temprature between layers 200 and 250 but i have no clue if this is possible and how to do that.

if anyone could help me with this i would much apreciate it.

The only way you can do that now is by doing it manually.

If you own an Ultimaker, you can use the 'tune' menu while printing.

When necessary you can change the temperature and speed.

You can not change the resolution.

Here is a test to determine what the ideal temperature is for your material.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
