S5: Why does one AA 0.4 core print slower than the other?

Posted (edited) · S5: Why does one AA 0.4 core print slower than the other?

Hello All,

 

I have an Ultimaker S5. If I slice the object using Extruder 1 (Ultimaker Black PLA), the print time is 2 hours 42 minutes. If I switch to Extruder 2 (MatterHackers Generic PLA) the print time is only 1 hour 23 minutes.

Does anyone know why this difference exists?

    I'm just guessing, but especially the print speed setting is applied to every core individually. You only show the settings for the first printcore. Therefore I'm assuming the speed for the second core is just doubled.

    OK, thank you! I didn't realize that the print setting were different for each core. That definitely explains it. Thanks again!
