How to have multiple print speeds for 1 model. Cura 3.6.0


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to have multiple print speeds for 1 model. Cura 3.6.0

Hello everyone! I have a Monoprice maker pro and working on a project. my model I want to print has a big base and some stuff on it but higher up on my model i have smaller things that need to be printed slow. Is there a script or add-on to allow me to set multiple speeds? like for example: layers 1-100 print at 60mm/sec and layers 101-150 at 45mm/sec or something like that. Since I'm printing at 0.035mm resolution, the big base would take alone like 16h before it gets to the other layers since the other layers need like wall speeds of 25mm/sec and travel speed slower since they are very detailed and thin parts. its 1 model that has to be 1 piece so I cant print the base separate and glue it together. I have split other prints before but this one has to be 1 thing. with the settings i want, it would take 1.83 days to print

    I'm also interested by this information

    I know you can do it on S3D by configuring differents layers profiles

    But as VinLom ask, is there a sch function in Cura 3.6 or 4.0 the last one ?

    I read on old websites there was a thing called "TweakAtZ", but i didn't find it

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
