Dual extrusion heat/cool speed calibration

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual extrusion heat/cool speed calibration

I'm working with a delta with a E3D Chimera+ hotend. I'm looking to more accurately calibrate the values for the following settings:




Here is what I tried (beyond guessing): For machine_nozzle_heat_up_speed I tried preheating the hotend to 175 (the idle temperature I am using), starting a timer then setting the temperature to 215 (my printing temperature). Then calculating the value by (215 - 175)/TimeMeasured. I did the process in reverse for machine_nozzle_cool_down_speed. While this is an overall improvement, I'd like to see if it can be improved. Is there better method for homing in on the values for these settings?

      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.
