speed travel wrong Unit in Cura [mm/s] - [mm/min]

Hello all,


I think I found a bug in Cura Software.

In start gcode you can implement the variable {speed_travel}. In Cura (German Version), it is related to the input field 'Bewegungsgeschwindigkeit' (travel speed)

The unit at input field in Cura is [mm/s]. If gcode is generated the value is transmitted 1:1 to gcode, that means e.g.


Input field Cura: 'Bewegungsgeschwindigkeit' (travel spped) = 120 mm/s


printer start code e.g. : G1 Z15.0 F{speed_travel} ;move the platform down 15mm


generated gcode        : G1 Z15.0 F120 ;move the platform down 15mm


but gcode uses as unit not mm/s, it uses mm/min !


I think when gcode is generated it must be 120 x 60 [mm/s] -> 7200 [mm/min]


Best regard
