What expert settings are under quick print fast/normal/high

Recommended Posts

I assume there are expert settings hiding under the 3 quick print modes fast/normal/high. Is there somewhere an overview of these settings. I got lost with the expert settings and was forced to go back to quick print mode to get some decent prints.

Oeps, there is a special chapter for the Cura software. This posting belongs there, sorry!

Moderator feel free to move this posting.

Well I never used this quickprint mode myself, especially because it was a total black box, and as soon as a newbie encounter a problem s/he's given a solution implying to tune some parameter. I'm always surprised to see people using it on a routine basis :)

As for trusting the tooltip, yes I would, and I don't see it being a major problem to keep it updated. The value in it doesn't have to be hardcoded, and I guess Daid only changes the settings for quickprint mode in one single place if it's changing from version to version. Well at least I hope for him =)

Aside from the technical consideration about keeping it updated or not, I would be interested to know what an UX-specialist would say about the quick print mode:

- Better keeping it simple and unexplained at all like now.

- Or just give some non-editable information to create some curiosity with the user and start to draw him to expert mode.

But I guess it depends on who is targeted in this quickprint mode,

For those of you (newbie's) who wants to know what expert settings are behind the quick print buttons.

I made a PDF-file (with 3 pages) what will give an overview, click here for download http://www.copyshopnhl.nl/quickprint2expert.zip

Keep in mind that these are screenshots from the Cura version 14.07. Future updates will override all this. This overview works for me to get some idea how to fine tune.
