My Ultimaker sometimes go crazy fast

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have the problem that my beloved Ultimaker goes crazy fast. Even though I have first layer speed at around 20-30mm/s, it starts out at something which looks like 80-90mm/s.

Last time it did this i found out that it was because i had the minimum layer time set to 15s, changing this down to 7 or 10 fixed the problem.

But now it does it again, and i can not figure out which setting triggers it. And of course it makes it impossible to get the first layer down :(

I hope that someone have a clue :)

Thank you in advance.

/Jens

I think that's the 'travel speed'. The speed at which it moves when not extruding but moving from one place to the other. You can find this setting on the second tab (I think the default setting is 150 mm/sec). But for best print results you should not lower this value because traveling with a low speed alows more time for oozing.

    • "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.
