Cura 14.07 and setting initial layer speed...

Posted · Cura 14.07 and setting initial layer speed...

I'm very new to this whole thing and learning every day. Today is Cura.

I'm running v14.07 and would like to know how to set a number of initial layers to print at a slower rate than the rest of the print.

Example, let's say I want to print the initial 8 layers to print at 20mm and the rest to print at 35mm (or whatever) how would I do that in Cura 14.07?

Also, can someone explain to me what the difference is between Cura 2.5.0 and Cura 14.07? I don't understand why the same name branding but when the version numbers are so much different & the functionality is different.

Thanks, everyone!

    The versioning is a bit a long story. We used to use year.month.revision as versioning number. At some point we re-wrote Cura, which was released as 15.06. This was a waay to early release and is widely regarded as being horrible.

    In order to prevent confusion somewhat between "Legacy" Cura and "New" Cura, we decided to do a major break and call the new Cura 2.x

    The 2.x has been developed further, whereas legacy cura has not been updated in quite some time. So if you want the latest & greatest, download the newest Cura 2.x
