Cura settings for a fast printer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura settings for a fast printer

I've got a DYNAMO 3D3 ONE PRO an want to set it up for best results.

 

The above machine has a maximum print speed of 450 mm/s and acceleration of 10,000 mm/s/s and other enhanced features.

 

When I tried setting up the D3D as a "custom printer", it won't let me put in a speed faster than 150 mm/s. Obviously, I'd like to get the best possible performance from the Dynamo.

 

Does anyone know of a fix for Cura? or a recommended alternative slicer package?

What do you mean by "it won't let me"? The input field(s) turn orange, but that does not stop you from slicing. Orange means that Cura thinks the value is "unlikely" to be correct. Only if the field turns red the value is not allowed (eg if you enter 0 for speed).

 

Edit: If you want to be able to change the Acceleration easily, install the Printer Settings plugin from the Marketplace.

Yes, it turned orange. So if it still works regardless of being "unlikely", that should do it.

If you have the Printer Settings plugin installed, you can increase the "Maximum Speed X" and "Maximum Speed Y" settings. Then the speeds you enter can be higher than 150 without the field turning orange.

Hi

 

An off topic suggestion: I've done this with a number of printers over the years. Work up to the max speed in steps. Print a couple of throw away parts at each speed. Watch the layer times and hang on to the parts produced. At some point the layer times on practical parts don't change much at all. Also at some point the defects in the objects become bothersome. Just where that happens is very much "that depends".

 

Since this involves varying speed, acceleration, and a few other things, it can get tiresome. The settings interact so simply varying one at a time does not get you to the best / fastest operation. For that reason I usually start with something simple and small-ish. I then go on to bigger and more complex test objects.
