Speed between differing machines.

HI folks.

 

I have an Ulti3 and a CR10 which I use for large stuff where the quality isn't paramount.  If I set both printers off at the same time with a print speed of 80, the Ulti ponders around carefully printing the objects while the CR10 goes off like bonkers and prints approximately twice the speed.

 

I know the Ulti uses a different flavour of gCode, but surely speeds should be the same?  it's all mm/s isn't it?

    Nothing to add but questions. Are you using the same slicer for both? How does the quality vary? To be clear, you print something for four hours on the UM3 and the CR10 prints in 2? What about infill quality?

     

    All things for me to just understand.....sorry nothing worthwhile to help though. The UM3 is my only experience as a 3D Printer hardware.

    The UM3 comes with a set of elaborate quality profiles to get the best out of your printer/material combinations. Most of these profiles override certain “parts” of the print speed, such as first layer print speed, outer wallprint speed, etc. These overrides don’t apply to your CR-10. I think this explains mist of the differences.

    Well.... besides the "elaborate profiles" some of the speed settings are a bit strange. Ultimaker Cura defines the main speed setting as the INFILL speed.

    Basically you set half the speed you think you set in some profiles, above sample is standard PLA for UM3.

     

    I personally don't like my infill to print crappy, so I flatten out the speeds to be closer to each other.

      • 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
