Expert settings - Maximum Z speed


Recommended Posts

Posted · Expert settings - Maximum Z speed

Since i want to change my build plate speed to slower i was looking at all settings.

And the only axis speed settings i can find is settings for the Z axis, and when hover on that setting it says:

"The maximum speed with witch the build plate is moved" and some more bla bla...


But as far as i know the build plate moves is on axis Y




I use a CR-10S and in my manual it's the same. The build plate is on the Y axis.


So what is wrong here?

    You have to remember that Cura firstly supports UM machines and those machines have the build plate moving in Z and the nozzle moves in X/Y. So in this case, ignore the setting blurb.
