.. I mean, say during a print I use the hardware control on the UM2 to Tune/speed/125%. Is the speed of motion the only thing effected, or does the flow rate also scale up at the same time? (I wouldn't expect the temp to change as well, but correct me if I'm wrong..)

Cheers, C

    On my UM2s the speed of printing increases, and the speed of extrusion changes accordingly (so you get the same filling of the model); but also the speed of traveling increases. It does not change temp.

    However, if you make brutal speed changes halfway a print, you will see that in the model: it gives different ringing effects around corners, and if the model is small, the difference in cooling time per layer is also visible. Further, if the speed increases brutally, filament has less time to melt in the nozzle, which will give a higher pressure and less extrusion. This is also visible in the print as a faint horizontal line.

      • 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
