Cura stated times as opposed to experienced times

Posted · Cura stated times as opposed to experienced times

Hi, can anyone tell me why when I slice a file using Cura that it prints the file much quicker than the stated time? for example I have just printed a form in PLA on a Hictop Prusa i3 type printer with a stated time of 1 day 8 hours and 33 minutes that actually printed in 23 hours and 14 minutes. Thanks, P

    This may be due to the default Jerk and Acceleration settings in Cura being less than what is set on your printer.

    In Cura 2.3, you can set the Jerk and Acceleration in the Speed settings (you may have to make them Visible).

    I was having the opposite problem, Cura time estimates were much lower than my actual print times until I changed the Jerk and Acceleration setting in Cura to match my printer. Now they are +/- 5%
