What settings are you using at the moment?

 

I see you tagged the topic as UM3 so i assume you have one, and the question relates to that printer?

 

You can see the different speed settings on the advanced view of settings in cura (you can see more when you click on the gear next to a setting group)

 

Personnaly i don't print higher than 50mm/s most of the time, unless i know that quality is not needed.

 

To speed up prints i usually try to print higher layers, with a bigger nozzle. But with 3d printing i also learned to be patient, yes it's slow but most of the time it's better to wait a few extra hours to have a good result ;)

    • "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.
