Different z axis speeds for different parts of the print?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Different z axis speeds for different parts of the print?

Is there any speed setting in cura that lets me change the speed in the z axis when it gets to a certain part of the model? Something simple like, after 50% of the bottom half is done, I want the z speed to slow down or speed up when printing the other 50% of the model.


I can also work with mm too. Like after 5mm in the z axis, for the speed to slow down or speed up for the rest of the print.


Im looking at cura settings and only see speed change of top and bottom layers. But nothing about changing speed for certain sections of a model.


For example, I want to build a vase, I want the speed to slow down when printing just the neck of the vase, but I don't want to slow down the entire print just so the neck of the vase can be print slower.
