Inconsistent movement in print

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We hope someone here can provide some advice about the movement in the printing process.

Without adjusting anything, we have noticed that with every print, the head would start in one speed for maybe 5mm of height, then decide to slow down for another 5mm, then change to the faster speed again, and will alternate between the two speeds until it finishes.

We have guessed that it might have something to do with Print Acceleration and Jerk settings, however, after adjusting those setting in Cura, there has been no noticeable difference.

If someone here would have some insight, we would appreciate it very much!

Sincerely,

Ying

There are many different jerk and acceleration settings which are hidden. Try to display them all, and maybe you can get the behavior you expect.

But of course I advise to stick to all default settings, cause usually these are really good

    • 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.
