Creality Ender 6 default Travel Speed is too fast

Posted · Creality Ender 6 default Travel Speed is too fast

Hello I am using Cura 5.2.1 with an Ender 6 and the travel speed of 200 mm/s  is just way too fast. The printer squeals loudly and almost tries to jump off the table. Yes, the printer can manage this speed just about, but this is not a realistic value. Could whoever is responsible for the default Ender-6 printer profiles please set this setting to no more than 150mm/s.

 

Thank you.

    Hey @Peter_E6,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

     

    Since Cura is open source, printers are contributed by the community. If you would like to see a change you are welcome to contribute it yourself. You can find instructions here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura 


    It looks like the default printspeed is explicitely defined as 80 by default: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blame/340e03327ec35c5d25f9b02202f996d0a22f7cca/resources/definitions/creality_ender6.def.json#L22

     

    I think it might be related to your proejct,
    Do you have a project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting. 
    To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

    Hello,

     

    Correct the default printspeed is explicitely defined as 80, but the travel speed is defined as 200 mm/s. That's the setting "Speed->Travel speed". I have modified the Ender 6 printer definition file to default this to 150 and now everything is fine, that is at least until the next Cura update...

     

    Kind regards,

    Peter

      • 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
