Small Feature Speed Not Respected On Infill


Recommended Posts

Posted · Small Feature Speed Not Respected On Infill

I'm working on some parts with both large, low complexity areas and small, detailed areas, so I've been working with the Small Feature Speed setting to help me get the right speeds in both parts of the model. It's been generally working well, but I noticed today as I was previewing a part in the speed view mode, that the part infill is not respecting the small feature speed. In other words, even though the area of infill falls well within the Small Hole Max Size setting I gave it, the infill prints at the normal infill speed and is not reduced by the Small Feature Speed setting. Similarly, the support is entirely unaffected by the Small Feature Speed setting, both in the walls/infill, as well as the interface layers. Since I'm making a big part that is mostly low complexity, I really need to use large nozzles, and that makes it even more important to get the speed down on the tiny features so that it has a chance of printing well. I realize this is an experimental setting, so not fully supported, but I've come to depend on it and I'd love to have it fully functional. Is this exclusion of the infill and support from that setting a deliberate choice or a bug in the experimental setting?  Thanks!
