FlashForge Creator Pro Dual Extrusion Acceleration/Jerk Issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · FlashForge Creator Pro Dual Extrusion Acceleration/Jerk Issue

I'm trying to dual color print with a Flash Forge Creator Pro. It's essentially working, except despite telling Cura explicitly what I want the maximum acceleration to be, it generates this gcode right before going through the tool change process:


M204 S5000
M205 X30 Y30
G0 F3600 X-10.901 Y10.594


Which I believe is setting the maximum acceleration to be 5000, and jerk to be 30, and then make a linear move to get into the waiting position for the tool change. Unfortunately, this causes a very unpleasant sound to be made by the FFCP and also causes a layer shift since it's moving way faster than it should be. How would I tell it to not do this?

    Did you try unchecking "acceleration control" and "jerk control"?


    For the most part, one shouldn't let Cura pick the acceleration nor the jerk.


    This is just an attempt to lower ringing on visible surfaces but keep acceleration high on infill.  But it's not worth it in my opinion.

      • 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
