Different speed at different high

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was searching around the net for an answer, but I did not find, so, excuse me if my question is regular one and already discussed.

I am trying to print conus like object and trying do set the proper feed rate for my pritner. However, I found that at the lower and wider part of the conus my printer is printing faster and underextruding is observed as a result. On the other side, upper and narrower part of the conus is printed slower, and the print quality is pretty different and better. Why my feed rate is not the same and print speed is not the same for different object diameters? Shouldn't it be the same for all the object parts? I am not talking about different elemens speeds in the slicer setting, for example inner and outer perimeter. I am talking about different overall speed regardless of the object component speeds. Wider diameter, higher speed. Small diameter, lower speed.

Thank you in advance.

Sorry just reread and you lower & fatter, so it is thinner at the top! You will have a setting set for minimum layer time. As you get closer to the top this will automatically lower the print speed - which you need otherwise the layer print time will be too small and the layer you are printing will be printed on the previous layer which will still be soft.

    • "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.
