Mesh to change all print speeds?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Mesh to change all print speeds?

How do I place a mesh that would slow all printing speed at a given height or width?


I usually use an infill mesh that is slower high up on Z, but it only slows the infill parts, not the source model parts like walls (particularly walls).

Like this:



Use a helper volume (e.g. a cube you scale to your needs and lift to the correct height (you have to disable the drop-on-buildplate-option in the Cura configuration)), and give it the role of "Modify settings for overlap with other models" from the "per Model settings". Then add the speed you want to change to the per Model settings and voilà: it goes at a different speed (the image above shows going faster aka higher flow but of course it also works the other way round).

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
