How to change speed of print at selected slice layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to change speed of print at selected slice layer

I've been making a few prints and I would like to change the speed when it gets to spindly layers to that it does not move the thin parts around so much.

I have noticed that, say, when printing a very sharp cone, that a large base can be printed quite quickly, but that same speed will deform the thin parts at top due to the inertia of the nozzle.

I figure it can be done in code, but I know nothing about gcode at this time and it seems it could be either a plug in or something.

Yes? No?

Use the Tweek At Z Plugin in earlier versions of Cura or in Cura 2.4+ Extensions->PostProcess->Modify GCode and select Load Plugin & Tweek @ Z 5.1 from the list. Fill in the parameters and let it recalculate. Then save. Done.

That sounds a lot easier than what I was doing! LOL

I was breaking the model up into pieces, then setting parameters into each model part and then combining. While easy for some models, it would be very cumbersome for most types that I make.

Much appreciated!!
