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).

      • 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
