Switching from S3D, need help to configure my printer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Ive been want to give CURA a try but when I tied to switch over I hit a few snags.. .need some help.

My printer is a CTC dual with sailfish FW.

I have added the X3G writer plug-in and that part seems ok.


The main problem seems to be my print speed appears to be extremely slow, like 1 mm per second even though I have CURA set to 50mm/s

This extra slow speed is on X , Y and Z so I think i have missed a global setting somewhere?


In CURA preferences I have selected G-Code flavor to be 'Makerbot'


Have I missed anything else?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
