Different speed settings, same print speed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Different speed settings, same print speed

Hello,

I've done two testing prints, same object but different speed and layer heigth settings: 0.06mm and 40mm/s vs. 0.2 and 100mm/s.

I observed that on certain areas, even the settings are different, the printer is moving the same (and i'm not talking about the first layer).

Is it normal that the printer itself decide to use a certain speed on some areas?

Which are the factors that affect this?

I may post two videos regard that.

Thanks,

Stefan

Just because you tell it to go at a certain speed, it does not mean it's able to get there. The printer has an acceleration setting, so if the segment it's printing isn't long enough, it won't reach the speed (as it also needs time to de-accelerate).

Don't be fooled by claims about speeds that a printer can reach. In most cases it won't ever reach them due to these constraints.

I think you are talking about the minimum layer time. Default is 5sec. So If your layer is very short, Cura will slow down the speed to assure the next layer is not lay down too fast (5sec)

Thanks for the quick and firm answer. Yes, the minimum layer time was set to 5sec. When i repeat the tests i will confirm the result.

I think the acceleration was not the problem, as long as the "faster" area was "H" shaped while the slower one war a rectangle (same size, smaller primeter).

    • "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.
