Unexpected pause at layer change

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Unexpected pause at layer change

Just wanted to share in case it helps someone.


Running the current master branch from git and had an odd pause during layer changes.


Long story short:


The profile for my printer (Ender 3) did not have a "Maximum Z Speed" which generated the following G Code


G1 F17987547480000 Z0.3

G Code involving other axis calculated correct speeds.



G0 F1500 X112.719 Y99.571 Z1.3

Inserting a value to "Maximum Z Speed" resolved this issue.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
