changeAtZ change speed

Posted · changeAtZ change speed

Hello everybody

I have a question about the post-script changeAtZ.

There is the option, to change the"speed" (in percentage)


I'm going to change the speed for multiple layers....


Here is my question:

If I start with the basic setting of 25mm/s speed


changeAtZ: by Layer: 10; Speed: 50%;

I think the speed is 12.5mm/s now.....


10 layers later, I want to increase it to 60mm/s.

Do I have to calculate the percentages from the current speed(12.5mm/s)?

i.e. 12.5mm/s = 100% -----> 480% = 60mm/s


or does the script always calculate the default settings, i.e. 25mm/s ?????

If it not calculate with the current speed (12,5mm/s), rather it calculate by default settings like 25mm/s, so i  only need to increase it to 240%.


The Question:


changeAtZ: by Layer: 20; Speed: 480% or 240%;


Thank you for your help
