too long to print models

Recommended Posts

I have suddenly finding that my models even small ones are taking too long to print.

ones that used to take about 4 hrs are now showing 1d14hrs etc., what am I doing wrong?

If you hover your mouse over the time it will show you how much time is spend on different step like infill, travel, retract... so it will give you an idea where to save time. You might wanna look at you speed to see if it's low, maybe your infill is set too high like if you have 100% infill it will use the top/bottom printing speed and it's often slower than infill speed.
