Recommended Infill Speed / Temp ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently using the Cura default speed and temp for Ultimaker PLA at .15 layer height (70mm/s at 200C) and am getting incredible underextrusion on the infill. The outer layers all look as hoped. Can anyone offer any advice in regard to a better ratio? I am just surprised the default produced such a poor result.[media-thumb=30238]

Are you using cura 2.X or 15.x? The newer versions of cura have the infill at a higher speed. I completely disagree with this philosophy. I'm guessing your infill is much faster than 70mm/sec.

Anyway, what type of printer do you have? Please update your profile settings. 70mm/sec at 200C at .15mm layers is much too fast for a um2. I'm guessing this is a um3?

    • "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.
