New Cura (2.1.3) Print Estimates Slower? (and actual printing)


Recommended Posts

Posted · New Cura (2.1.3) Print Estimates Slower? (and actual printing)

Hi, using standard features in the old and new Cura I expected pretty much the same print speeds but the new software seems much much slower, granted some of the pieces I am printing are bigger but I have accounted for that

quality is still the same (i.e. great!) and I notice no other differences other than the speed, now I am getting into two day prints...this is for a print that it 75*130*75 with .4mm PLA, high quality light fill

just seems slower to me, any ideas?

(I am not so comfortable with the new advanced settings as they do not seem so easy)

thanks Dan

    this is much slower than before, I loaded an old print on the same basic settings and instead of a few hours it now says 1day 6hrs, how can the basic settings be that much different?

    There are certain settings that have a drastic impact on the time. We add new features that improve stuff all the time and sometimes those features will increase print time. We try to keep the print time as fast as possible, but it's always a balancing act between quality, print time, slice time & difficulty of implementation.

    So sometimes we find something that works for 99% of the models, but makes it slower for the 1% and then we still enable that feature.

    The problem here is that it's hard to say what exactly is making this print so slow (so making it faster needs an expert)

        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.
