how to print walls with different speed


Recommended Posts

Posted · how to print walls with different speed

Hi guys 

 i want to print the inner wall and outer wall of an object with different speed depending on the position of the wall in the body of the object 

for instance i want to make the out wall of the object in fast speed but the wall of the holes inside the object because they are small so i want to print their walls in lower speed 

what should i do ?

    I think, the "cutting mesh" feature is intended for those use cases.


    I have not used it myself yet, and I'm not sure if there are instructions somewhere to find?


    Basically you create and load additional meshes, place them in the areas around the holes, mark them as "cutting mesh" and define different speed settings.

    (use the "per model settings" for the latter tasks)

    Note that in Cura 3.2 (beta, and release) the term "Cutting mesh" is no longer used. Instead you set the Mesh Type to " Modify settings for overlap with other models ".

    Think about whether you want a quality surface finish. "Fast speed" will not deliver and changing print speeds continually during printing will keep changing the pressure in the filament feed an give poorer quality.

        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.
