Cura for Mac and an Ender 3 Pro

Hi Y'all, 

 

I am running Cura on a Mac using my ender 3 pro and it seems to print WAY to fast and the prints don't stick to the board.  I use the same settings on a different slicer and have no issues. Can anyone help?

Hi,

If you could save and upload a .3mf project file from Cura please that would let us see just what settings you are using. Can do this via going to File and picking Save.

 

But as you say it’s printing WAY faster than a print with another slicer using same settings then I’m going take a guess the other slicer makes use of mm/min print speeds, where as Cura makes use of mm/s speeds what’s mm a sec so that means you need to divide the speed value by 60 that you are using from the other slicer. 
 

So if you got a speed setting of 3600 in the other slicer that becomes 60 in Cura.

 

But again this is just a guess to what as happened with having not seen any the settings, if this is not the case please still upload the .3mf file so can take a look.

If I'm right, default printing speed for an Ender 3/Ender 3 pro selected in Cura is 50mm/sec. First layer will be printed at 25mm/sec. You can check that speed in settings!

 

But without knowing your settings it is a wild guess why it is printing way faster then with another slicer...

 

Maybe it helps when you have some good Cura Profiles for Ender 3/Ender 3 Pro, you can download them from CHEP-website.

On YouTube you can find CHEP-channel, with many videos about tweaking/tuning your ender 3 (Pro).
