Cura 2.3.1- Over ride the 150 mm/s limit

Recommended Posts

Well I don't know what's your machine, system or anything else (since you didn't post it) so I don't know how can I help you on that. For speed settings, you can pretty much anything your machine can handle. Speed is finite, as much as you can't extrude 150 mm/s of material without a big loose in quality.

It will be interesting to see your results of your timing against the Cura estimate.

The thing to note is that printing 3x faster isn't going to result in printing in 1/3 of the time.

I can change the print speed in Cura and all the other Speed settings, and the estimate print time does go down but not a lot as there are other factors that affect the time as well:

Jerk

Acceleration

First Layer Print Speeds

Retraction Distance and Speed

Combing

Rafts, Brims, Supports, etc.

Z-movements

If the Cura estimates are way off from the actual print times (> +-10%), take a close look at Jerk and Accelerations settings in your printer compared to those in Cura. Matching those up will help close that time gap.

    • "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.
