acceleration configuration ???

Recommended Posts

As both of the above posters noted - the thing it fixes the most is ringing - look at the pictures in this topic to understand:

It also makes the printer quieter if you lower acceleration and less shaking the table and also makes it print slower - especially if there are lots of sharp turns that the head has to make such as text. But on a real printer decreasing acceleration doesn't slow prints down too much. Cutting acceleration in half in theory could slow down print time by 30% (square root of .5 is .707) but in practice it might only be 5% if you have many long straight lines such as infill.

Cura assumes I believe 3000mm/sec/sec acceleration (or maybe 5k?) so if you go slower Cura will not correctly guess your print times.

    • "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.
