S5 Dual extrusion print travel speed very slow between nozzle swaps compared to travel speed setting

Posted (edited) · S5 Dual extrusion print travel speed very slow between nozzle swaps compared to travel speed setting

Hi

 

I need to increase the travel speed between nozzle swaps on a dual extrusion print.  The travel speed between swaps is much much lower than that set in the travel speed parameter.  Anyone know how I can speed this up?

 

Many Thanks

    Unfortunately this is not a setting that can be change within UltiMaker Cura.
    It is controlled firmware side.

    AFAIK the speed of travel to the switch is set by cura, the switching speed itself and the short distance move into the bay are set in the /user/share/griffin/griffin/machines/um3.json file as hotend_switching_speed and default_travel_speed respectively.
    Feel free to try some different values, but be aware that faster operation may cause more errors (which can be seen as leveling errors, or just mess up a print) and possibly damages things, especially if not calibrated perfectly.

        (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.
