what is the best printing speed

Posted · what is the best printing speed



I print an object size: 180.0 x 118.0 x 6.9mm, but it takes 7h15min, is too long. In the cura sofeware shows print speed 70mm/s,Travel Jerk: 50mm/s. How can I increase the speed to print an object?  which speed should I change? (infill speed, wall speed, outer wall speed or inner wall speed...........)

    depends on the design and the quality of your printer, newbie printer (CS10S pro) but mine does fine at 100mm for easy prints (basic shapes and curves) but models I put it on 60mm and the details print fine

    Depending on the model to be printed, the speed also varies. Another important factor is your personal perception of "beauty" and what is acceptable to you. Objects that you can't see and are used functionally don't need a nice surface, but others do.


    Say goodbye to fast printing, I usually print between 20 and 60mm/sec and prefer more beautiful results. You can also save time with infill, the less the faster.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
