Cura 3.1 ironing issue

Recommended Posts

I'm trying out Ironing in 3.1, and have an issue with it. The print is a solid 4"x8"x1/8" piece with a pattern on top. Printing at conservative speeds, it takes just over 3hrs.5min., while Cura 3.1 estimates 2:50. 


When I make just one change, turning on Ironing with Only Top Layer set, Cura's estimate goes to 4:10, and I'm betting on at least 4:30. The whole print has slowed - everything that was printing at 35mm/sec appears to be running around 20mm/sec. It's all moving veeeerrrry sloooowwwwly through the whole print.


I went back and turned Ironing off again, and the estimate is back down to 2:50 again.

 

Whaaaaat?

    • "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.
