Cura feature request

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura feature request

I've noticed in my albeit very short experience in 3D printing that some parts of models benefit from a lower/higher temperature and print speed than other parts.

What I usually do for those models is sit with the UM2 and "TUNE" the temp and print speed at the appropriate point based purely on my eye judgement.

What would be good is if you could set the temperature, print speed, flow rate, etc at specific layers (as judged by the layer view in Cura). These settings would persist until either the end of the print or until the next setting point reached.

Would that be useful to anyone other than me?

Yes! Tweak at Z. Basically what you are asking for already exists in Cura. Also I have read that this version is better (works better with multiple models printing one-at-a-time on the same build):

EDIT - THIS ONE IS BETTER:

https://github.com/Dim3nsioneer/Cura-Plugins/raw/master/TweakAtZ.3.0.1.py

Version 3.0 will not work properly without adding some plugin specific comments to the start.gcode (see also this post (#24): http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2454-cura-13064-plugins/page-2&do=findComment&comment=27939).

Version https://github.com/Dim3nsioneer/Cura-Plugins/raw/master/TweakAtZ.3.0.1.py doesn't have that issue as it starts with a different default value for the 'activated/deactivated' settings...
