Cura Max Resolution Value ??


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Max Resolution Value ??

What should the Max Resolution be set to in Cura (its location in experimental settings), the previous version of Cura (3) would set this to something small like 0.05 i think it was for my 2+, but now the defaults for my new S5 in Cura 4 are over 1, 1.25 in fact !, what should this be ?, i did read someone from UM saying there were some crazy values being set here but what is (roughly) the correct value for this ?

 

thanks

    If you have a powerful computer on your printer, such as a smoothie board or other cell phone processor then you can make this quite small, say 0.1mm, because those tend to have a buffer that can store 100 gcodes at a time so if there are 30 steps going around a rounded corner that should be fine.

     

    But if you have an Ultimaker (UMO through S5 models so far) that has Marlin in it or almost any of the other 99% of 3d printers in the world, Marlin only stores 16 future moves at a time and has to be ready to stop by the 16th.  So it will print amazingly slow if you lower this to 0.1mm and your model is very high resolution (like, say, yoda).

     

    The current value of 0.8 or so, should be fine.  It means that minimum line lengths are 0.8mm.
