UMO speed not changed by Ulticontroller.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UMO speed not changed by Ulticontroller.

Trying to figure out why changes I make to speed through the Ulticontroller do not affect print speed.  Is my start code overriding any change from the Ulticontroller?

Here is my startcode:

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

M92 E315 ;set E steps per

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G1 Z15.0 F9000 ;move the platform down 15mm

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

G1 F200 E2 ;extrude 2 mm of feed stock

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

G1 X5 Y5 Z-15 F9000 ;drag nozzle

G1 F9000

M117 Printing...

Thanks in advance..

    I should mention that I also have speeds set individually in Cura 2.3.1

    print speed 50mm/s

    infill speed 60mm/s

    outer wall speed 40mm/sec

    inner wall speed 50mm/sec

    top/bottom 40mm/sec

    Are these taking precedence over input to the Ulticontroller?

    Ideally, I'd like to keep these relative speed settings, and be able to increase or decrease them in proportion with the Ulticontroller while printing.

    Yes, that is where I am attempting to change the speed. In the past, this would adjust all speeds in proportion the the UC feed percentage displayed on the main screen. Currently for me, it is not altering the speed. I am wondering if the individual speeds I set in Cura are over riding any change I make at the UC, or if the something in my start code is preventing the controller from affecting the speed.

    I will slice something with old Cura and with the same start code to try and narrow down the problem

    This has nothing to do with the slicer.

    Marlin factors the speed/flow by the feed rate percentage so it overrides everything.

    But be aware that changing the feed rate has no immediate effect, it first needs to flush the already processed commands in the print buffer. I particular when it prints slowly long straights (e.g. bottom layer) it can take some time before you can see the actual change.

    Right, I am aware of the lag to clear the buffer before the speed change. What I am seeing is a behavior abnormal to the past 4 years. I can say that I haven't installed firmware for over a year.

    I haven't had an opportunity to slice something in the old Cura to make a comparison because I am in the middle of customer work. Testing will have to wait a bit.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
