Highschool Project_ chess set_

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have been trying to print out a Chess set my students are Designing using Gravity sketch. But for some reason, my prints have been really struggling and I think it has to do with my print setting. I am using the factory setting for the Ultimaker 3 extended but for some reason, the speeds are very high. Anyone have any good print setting that they would recommend?

My print acceleration(4000) and travel acceleration(5000) is very high and those are the preset is this normal?

Thank you all for your help!

Try to unhide the other accel/jerk settings and you will see that it only uses that high values for travel motion or infill. The visible areas are printed muuuuch slower.

Ofc if you use S3D they also added low accel/jerk to match the hardware limitations. But the settings are send by gcode when it changes heads.

But yea, the machine by default, without cura profiles or s3d basic profiles, has very high values much higher than what it can really manage without quality loss. But also only s3d and cura have Griffin headers that um3 accepts, so to send from another slic3r you would need to modify the header by hand to bypass um3 griffin flavor control.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
