S5 default profile advice


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 default profile advice

Hi,

 

I have received my S5 and so far very impressed, quality is amazing, lots of really nice features etc. 

 

I am not starting to tune the print profiles and rather than use what i had for my 2+ i am starting with the UM base profiles for the S5 and tweaking those. Looking at the standard profiles a few things seem strange which i would like some thoughts on.

 

Speed - for the 0.4 print core the default travel speed is 150 and the field goes red if i go above this, this seems quite low ?, also and more relevant is that the default travel jerk for 0.4 core is 50 !, this is quite agressive and makes the printer shake a bit when travelling. Strangly for the other sizes of print core (0.8 and 0.25) the default travel jerk is 30 ?.

 

I also noticed that for just the 0.8 core the option to print outer wall before infil was checked but all other profiles the infil is printed first, this seems strange.

 

Any thoughts on this ?, the jerk settings are very different between cores and for 0.4 core pretty violent on travel, i tried knocking back the travel jerk to 30 and got some slight stringing on a retraction test, not tried the same test on a 0.8 nozzle so don't know if by default at 30 it will string
