feedrate Z-Axis?


Recommended Posts

Posted · feedrate Z-Axis?


in Cura from version 4.2 there are new Start-G-Codes.
So I have in the profile a line "M203 X500.00 Y500.00 Z10.00 E50.00".
My first question is, what is this line for?
The option "Maximum Z Speed" was replaced by "Z Hopp Speed". According to the explanation, the speed at which the vertical movement (Z-axis) takes place during Z-jumps should be.
But with me exactly this value is always used for the Z-speed. Stupid is, that you only see this option "Z Hopp When Retracted" is activated. If this point is not active, the "Z Hopp Speed" option is not displayed, but the value entered in it is used in the G-Code.
If this value is higher than the value entered in the line ""M203 X500.00 Y500.00 Z5.00 E50.00 ;Setup machine max feedrate", it is not limited, so the whole line there is obsolete. If I enter a 0 in "Z Hopp Speed", the value from M203 is not used either, although this is supposed to replace a missing value in the firmware.
Then with each Z-movement an F0 is written into the G-code.
Here the programmers have probably shot themselves in the knee. I'm sure they only wanted to achieve something good, I needed half an hour yesterday to find out where the feedrate for the Z-movement comes from. I didn't get the idea that I first had to activate a Z-hopp to find the hidden option with the wrong explanation.

      • 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
