Reduce Noise With Different Slicer

Recommended Posts

The noise is a product of the accelerations in the printhead. You are undoubtedly getting different sounds due to the different approaches each slicer takes in reading how to generate the g-code. As the largest impact in the way it generates the g-code is going to be what the part physically is, it would be particularly difficult to quantify which is the most quiet.

If most of the noise is generated by acceleration of the printhead, NetFabb lets you manually set the maximum acceleration in the extended setup of the machine. Its default is 7 m/s2, so you can lower it and see if the noise goes down. Of course the build time will go up, depending on how many changes in direction and speed are needed.

I have little experience with other slicers.

    • "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.
