A setting to slow down around vertical text?

Recommended Posts

Posted · A setting to slow down around vertical text?

Hi guys, does anybody know of a setting that will slow the printer speed down around a selected area? I have a ton of parts that I need to print so im trying to keep my speeds higher but there is some extruded text along a wall (see photo), my high speed prints are coming out perfect except for the text. Stock settings with CURA and though PLA on the UM3 are having this part come out at 2.5hours and the text is clear, Ive got the print down to 1H19min and the part is stronger than ever! But I can hardly read the text when I print this fast since the machine is not that rigid. Any input would be appreciated!

Without knowing anything about your part geometry, is there any possibility of rotating it so the text is facing upward, then going with variable layer height?

Thanks for the response, unfortunately the text has to stay the way it is. These are thin wall tubes. not too many flat surfaces to work with.

You can try if you can achieve it with the "per model settings" in the left menu. Make a cube in your CAD software and put this cube to the build plate too. Move the cube to overlap the text or the area you want to change. Then select the cube and click on the pet model settings. There you have a lot of options to modify the print settings in the area the cube overlaps with your model.

 

I am not sure if you can change the print speeds but you should be able to change the layer height. But check it, there are a lot of possibilities.
