what is the real print speed?

Hi

I'm getting confused about the real time printspeed. Hopefully, anyone could explain this to me.

Cura says standard print speed of the ultimaker 2 is 50 mm/s. I think that is quite fast. In the yellow pop-up window it says: 'You print 2.0mm^3 per sec which mean 8 sec/mm.

What does 50 mean?

    50mm/s is only the max speed in this one example. In reality it can go faster.

    2 cubic mm of filament per second is reasonable. The machines are tested at 8 cubic mm before shipping (that's too fast for a .4mm nozzle in my opinion - they push it to the limit).

    I expect you are still not clear on this but you need to ask more questions if you don't understand yet.

    By the way - to calculate the volume you multiple LXWXH or print speed X nozzle width X layer height.

    So 50mm/sec is no problem at .1mm layer height like you chose but if you go to .2mm layer height now you are at about the limit that I like to print at (4 cubic mm/sec).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
