Request: Volumetric Speed Limit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Request: Volumetric Speed Limit

Any chance of a configurable volumetric speed limit? 


Your hotend has a melt rate limit, it can only push so much plastic reliably. For example, 10mm/s^3. Would it be possible to have a configurable value that would allow you to limit/warn when your speed and layer height/extrusion width combination exceeds the configured value.


Slic3r does have this option, though it doesn't really warn or tell you when it's in effect.


I would think this would be useful for variable layer height printing as it could scale the print speed on the taller layers to remain within the extrusion limit without unnecessarily slowing down all the layers.
