Printing time ultimaker cura 4.x vs cura 14.07


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing time ultimaker cura 4.x vs cura 14.07

Hi, I'm still using cura 14 because every time I try cura 4.x the printing time is much longer. Without taking into account the estimated time and speaking of the actual printing time: With the same design and apparently the same configuration, I have printed the same piece in cure 14 in 39 minutes and in cure 4.8 in 56 minutes. Another design goes from 44 real minutes to 56 minutes. The difference in the estimated time is almost double.

I have an anet a6 with original firmware

This is normal?

    Yes, you cannot really compare these two versions. Cura 14 is 7 years old and has much less features than a current version.

    I agree but the printing time is a very important factor for me and with the printer I have the finish is similar in the two versions but the printing time is much longer in the more current versions

    If printing time is important you are satisfied with both version, stay with Cura 14.

    If you are interested why it takes longer, you can slice with both versions and then compare the gcode line by line to see what are the differences. Maybe you can safe some time with some settings in Cura 4.x but it is hard or impossible to say, turn this option on/off to get the same result.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
