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 ;)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
