Print time on UM2+ vs UM3 in Cura 2.4b

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just got my UM3 and using the same settings, the UM3 takes almost twice the time to print as my UM2+

Both were sliced with Cura 2.4b

Looking at them side by side, it looks like the UM# are printing the perimeters a lot slower, even when the setting is the same. Is this a known feature/bug/qirk?

The UM3 head is a bit heavier than the UM2(+) head. As far as I recall they tuned the acceleration & jerk settings to compensate for this.

You can change these settings in Cura if you want to. We tune settings for generic cases, so it's possible to create better settings for specific cases.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
