How to optimise (speed) of how the wall is printed?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to optimise (speed) of how the wall is printed?

Hi All,

I've been using Cura for some time and I noticed that this is super important of how the model is sliced and how "lines" are printed in order to print faster and smoother.


I'm trying to print a very simple model, something like a grid with straight walls. But the way the Cura sliced model makes printing slow.


This is the stl model view





and here is the print preview




I would like this print to be sliced into simple straight lines, without unnecessary turns and kind of "handles" for "T" wall joins. I prefer speed over perfection in this particular model.


I tried to play with different wall setting but I cannot make Cura to optimise this print into straight lines, they may overlap, that would be OK. Now, this simple grid takes hours to print because of all these unnecessary turns and corners. 


Any ideas?

      • 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
