Arc Welder slows down print dramatically

Recommended Posts

Posted · Arc Welder slows down print dramatically

Hello!  Yesterday, I tried adding the "Arc Welder" plugin to Cura. Without changing any other settings, the print speed dropped dramatically.


Anet A8 at it's core

SKR V1.4 Turbo board

TMC2209 stepper motor drivers

Cura 4.8 w/ Arc Welder development pack "dropped" onto build plate 

printing gcode from SD card

Marlin - with "arc support" enabled (I'm at a different PC and don't have the exact code bit handy)


Thank you in advance for your help!

    Today a new version of the plugin was released to the Marketplace. I don't expect it to change much in this case, but don't use the development snapshot anymore.


    Please specify "dramatically".

    How is the print quality?


    To diagnose the issue, it would be helpful if you post a gcode file with and a file without ArcWelder enabled.
