Print setting for cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print setting for cura

Hello Folks,


I was curious if someone had any details or article on ptimized setting for CURA for printing PLA with good accuracy. I mean to ask different settings we have in cura like temeperature. infill, wall thickness and so on.... I can basically print any component, but i want to bring out minor details from print which is important for my component.


Thanking you,

Siddharth Tilala

    Well there are a host of things you can play with to try to improve aspects but I think the two biggest rules are print slow and cool. Also the particular filament you will use can have an impact. Different coloured filaments from the same supplier can produce differences. Also easier if you design your models yourself. E.G. easier to print accurate 0.4 walls if they are 0.4 and not 5.3.


    I would recommend speed not above 30mm/s. For temp. use the filament you will use and print a series of 10mm cubes to find your temp. Print each cube at 5 degrees cooler than the previous one until you see evidence of under extrusion. Add 5 degrees to that temp. to get your desired temp.
