speed Ultimaker 3 vs ultimaker 2

Posted · speed Ultimaker 3 vs ultimaker 2

Hello,

 

When I slice an object for the Ultimaker 3 in Cura (3.3 or 3.4) the printing time is much longer than when I slice it for the Ultimaker 2. Although, I use the same layer height and the same Print Speed. I want it to be printed with only one extruder. Can I speed things up with the Ulitmaker 3?

You could speed things up, but since the print head is bigger and heavier, this will show in the surface quality of your print. So in general, an Ultimaker 2(+) is a bit faster than an Ultimaker 3. Both in acceleration/jerk and regular plain printing speed.

It of course depends on the model you want to print, but the additional time on the UM3 is usually below 10% of the whole print length. If it is higher in your case, please have a thorough look if some settings (including speeds) are different between the two.

Thank you for your answers. Actually, the print time with the UM3 is more or less 200% the time with the UM2.

This is a printscreen of what I obtain with Cura

Don't forget the zillions of hidden settings.

That's true... I will look a bit further in those hidden settings ?
