Cura 4.8 Maximum Z Speed Missing?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.8 Maximum Z Speed Missing?

I upgraded my printer with a different lead screw and I need Maximum Z speed to slow down my z axis to keep my motors from skipping or breaking something. It seems that in 4.8, either they removed it or it has been renamed. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Send M203 Z10 (10 is an example number) followed by M500.  M203 is max speed for the various axis and M500 will save it to memory in the printer.


    I used to like to fly fish for carp.  My biggest was 28#.  They are fresh water bonefish only bigger.
