Cura G-code Feedrates


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura G-code Feedrates

Can anyone explain how the G-code extrusion feedrates are calculated in Cura? How does the actual material extrusion rate (mm/sec) correlate to the G-code generated feed (for example F1200.0)?

What variable in Cura changes the extrusion feedrate?

Thanks in advance.

    I just stumbled over your three months old post, which isn't answered yet.

    Since I'm now dealing with the same issue: have you succeeded to get the info on different ways meanwhile?

    Best, Peter

    AFAIK, the values in the g-code are still in mm/min, for historic reasons, and now there are too many machines to change it. divide it my 60, and you'll see the mm/sec
