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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
