Change print speed dependent on height

Recommended Posts

I did some searching but likely don't know the 'key terms' to use, so my apologies if this has been asked/solved already.  Long story short, I  print on an Anet A8 and e10 where the bed moves in the y-direction.  I have gotten serviceable prints by changing speeds/etc.  Where I am running into trouble is with taller prints at a decent speed (60 mm/s).  I believe much of the problem comes from the y-axis moving back and forth with a long (tall) object on the bed.  I was wondering if Cura allows me to set the speed based on layer height.  I do slow down the speed for brim/initial layer, but I was thinking I could print ~ 80 mm/s for the first 'x' layers, and then slow down as the object gets taller.

 

I thank you in advance.

      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.
