Speed Settings for Small Infill


Recommended Posts

Posted · Speed Settings for Small Infill

Attached is a screenshot of the layer with the problem. The very small diagonal infill is causing severe vibration of the X and Y axes on my printer so it looses steps in both directions.

I have printing speed set to 50mm/s and none of the other speed settings enabled. What speed setting can I change to slow down this part of the printing without affecting the speed of the rest of the print? Or perhaps there is a kinder acceleration setting?

    While waiting for my post to be approved it looks like I might have found the solution. It seems the default travel jerk setting in Cura is too high for an Ender 3 Pro. I've reduced it to 10mm/s and everything so far is much smoother.

    Or I think you can just uncheck "jerk control" and "acceleration control".



    I had to check "jerk control" - it was hidden and unchecked. So maybe this default configuration in Cura uses some poor default in the firmware.

    If you disable jerk and/or acceleration control it should use the defaults on the printer itself.  Which might be set too high.  Most printer's these days use some version of Marlin and some versions of Marlin let you set motion parameters in the menu system.  Things like max speed, acceleration, jerk.  For each axis.

      • 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
