Print&travel speed ?

Recommended Posts

Print speed i understand, it is printing speed which is head moving while printing-extruding. But this printing speed also depends on option : "minimal layer time" , right ?(if i set MINIMAL LAYER TIME very low value then it will be printing @ most at PRINT SPEED) , right ?

But what is with TRAVEL SPEED ? This is speed when extruder is not extruding ? lets say when moving around on next object for print, like bridge or something like that object ?

Yes, the print speed can be limited by the minimal layer time. And if you put the minimal layer time very low, then it will also print at print speed.

The travel speed is the speed at which the printer head moves if it's not extruding. So moving from one place to another.

(A bridge is something else. Which is a part that is printed in mid air and connected on 2 sides)

    • "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.
