radically different print times between printers


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · radically different print times between printers

I have a model that I use to see how my printer is doing.  It is a 100mm tall cylinder with a 20mm OD and 10mm ID.  Today, I decided to run it on two different printers.  One is a CR-10S, and the other is a Monoprice Mini with E3D V6.  Slicing the model for the Mini gives me an estimated time of 1hr 29min.  Slicing the same model for the CR-10S with almost the same settings gives me an estimated print time of 4hrs 36min.   I know these are estimated times, but they were not that far off.   I have been through the settings several times, and there is nothing that can account for a 3-fold increase in time for the CR-10S.  Speeds are the same (100mm/s), and the acceleration/jerk settings are a little lower on the CR.  1000/10 on the Mini and 800/8 on the CR.  Even with the speed set at 100mm/s, my uncalibrated eye says the CR isn't going anywhere near that speed.  Any ideas what gives????  Maybe something about incorporating the Creawesome mod?




Edit:  I just created a Custom FFF printer with the same settings as the CR-10S and reran the slice.  The estimated time was 1hr 40min.  It does look like something in the Creawesome mod.

    Check your Cura printer profile with the plugin "Printer settings" of fieldOfView. Take a closer look for values of speed and acceleration and compare this with your firmware values. Then you know what's going on...

    Attached is a screen shot of the printer settings for CR-10S on the left, and a custom FFF for the same printer on the right.  Even though there is a huge difference between some of the speeds, the maximum X and Y speeds are still below the 100mm/s max that I am trying to use.  Acceleration is 500 for the CR-120S definition, which is a little slower than the 800 - 1000 I normally use, but still doesn't seem like near enough to account for a threefold increase in print time.  Default XY Jerk is 10 which is what I normally use anyway.

      • 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
