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!!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
