Posted · Where to define max speeds for new printer profile?

Hi all,

 

I am trying to setup new machine settings for my Turnigy fabrikator Mini 1.5 in Cura 4.6.1. I created a new machine based on the "Custom FFF" type. I could set a number of parameters of the machine there, but seem to be unable to set global max print and travel speeds anywhere. After defining the machine and extruder, a set of default profiles has been created automatically but they all contain default print speeds of 60mm/s which is much too fast for this little printer. Where can I modify the defaults for the printer?

 

Best regards,

Reiner

    You can edit the speeds in the sidebar. The "Custom FFF Printer" and the Machine Settings dialog only let you set a minimum number of settings for the printer.

     

    If you want to make a printer definition that you can distribute to others, you would need to make a set of .def.json files, and those can also contain speeds.

    If I edit the speeds in the sidebar, I get a popup notice every time I change the profile notifying me that the default was overwritten and if I wanted to keep or reset it to the default. That's why I was looking for a way to permanently set such basic values.

    I guess the way via .def.json files is the better then because then others could also benefit from it. Could you point me to a suitable set of such files that can be used as a starting point for a new set? Or is there even a documentation on how to create (and contribute) such new printer definitions to Cura development?
