UM s5 - Fast Print 0.8mm Nozzle?

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM s5 - Fast Print 0.8mm Nozzle?



Does anyone have cura settings they could share that really increases print speed beyond the pre-configured 'sprint' settings ? Has anyone figured out how far you can push print speed before prints start to fail (printing PLA)


Appreciate it would obviously be at the expense of quality, but curious to know whats achievable with the 0.8mm nozzle ..


Also, how does the 'tune' -> Print speed % work? Does increasing this, just increase the speed of movements of the extruder only or does it also alter things like flow rate  to compensate for the increase in speed?
