Please - Perimeter speed setting for Gcode

Recommended Posts

Fantastic slicer BTW ;-)

It would be fantastic if you get set a separate external perimeter speed when you slice your part, not just the option to do it "on the fly"

I have several printers and use octoprint/raspberry pis to run them.

This would make Cura perfect for me.

what do you think?

is this possible?

You can sort of fake it by setting a separate infill speed and normal speed. Set the standard speed setting to what you want for your perimeters and set your infill speed to the faster speed.

Some people think that setting a different speed for perimeters has an adverse effect on print quality due to "lag" in the extrusion, so keep that in mind.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
