Changing the formulas used to calculate values


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Changing the formulas used to calculate values

Hi, im currently working on 3d printing related research and for that i often have to change values for speeds, temperatures etc.

For more well defined results I want to have all printing movements done at the same speed, so there is no difference between outer wall, inner wall or infill speeds. If I chose a new value for a new experiment, I have to enter that value in every window that asks for print speed, because the automatic calculation i calculating values i don't want. When setting up many trials, this can become quite tedious if you have to do that over and over. 

Here is an example : If I set print speed 100mm/s,  infill speed will be 100*1.66, wall speed will be 100*0.5, outer wall speed is 100*0.67 and inner wall speed is 100*1.33.

What I want is a way to set all those multiplication factors to 1.

Is there a way to do that?

    Bumping this old thread because I would love to see this feature. I often have to change speeds and want certain speed settings to be proportional to the main "print speed" setting, via a formula. I end up tediously changing every speed manually. It would be awesome to be able to write it with a basic formula. For example, for infill speed you can put "=1.2x"Print Speed"" or something like that. You can just leave infill speed like that indefinitely so every time you change print speed, the infill speed automatically changes as well.


    Is there any chance we will see a feature like this soon?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
