Ultimaker S3 - Violent change in directions


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S3 - Violent change in directions

With a new Ulitmaker S3 I have noticed it makes very violent changes in either direction or layer (can't tell what one exactly). This causes the whole machine to vibrate, especially the cantilevered print bed and seems to have negative effects on the print quality.   Is this a result of speed or jerk settings?


Quality was set to normal (0.15mm layer height) in Cura 4.7.1.

    Hi twetter,


    Welcome in here.


    This acceleration/speed is quite normal for this setting I'll think, if you reduce the "traveling speed" this vibration effect will be reduced. I'd reduce it to the double of the printing speed, say 90 mm/sec.
