Extended print times

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extended print times

I've noticed a significant increase in print times using the Cura slicer.  Prints that used to take me 4 hours to print are now taking close to 8.  I have not changed any settings in my profile to allow this significant increase in print time.  I've even checked it against my Simplified3D slicer and my basic settings are showing closer to my normal print time.  Has Cura changed something that i'm not aware of that impacts print time that much? I prefer Cura over S3D but I can't be wasting twice the amount of print time on my machines.  Thanks for your help!

Print times do differ between Cura versions but I know that these changes are being monitored with every release and large deviations are being fixed, unless the extra delay improves print quality.

 

A factor 2 difference sounds like a change in settings. 

Can you share more info? What was the old Cura version and what is the new version you are using?

What printer brand & model are you using?

Can you post the model?

so the print time took place somewhere in between my versions 3.6, 4.3 and 4.4.  I run a small business and have most of my gcodes saved so I'm sure that i didn't notice it right when the change happened.  I don't mind a small deviation in print times at all especially when it's improved paths, or improved quality.  the model is insignificant as it's not model specific, i've tested it with multiple models.  The basic settings i've inputted the same in S3D and cura and get very drastic print times, both estimated and actual.  I'm using Creality printers right now, Ender 3's, Ender 5's, CR10's.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
