Cura print parameters not taken into sd file

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura print parameters not taken into sd file

Hello,

I just received my new UM2, so I am still discovering how everything works. I get into some bumps where you could maybe help me.

The biggest bump is that whatever the basic/advanced Cura parameters I set, the sd file does not take it : for example the print speed is set in Cura to 50mm/s and then when printing the printer shows a 100% print speed!

Same problem with temperature and fans...

Am i doing soemthing wrong ?

Hi,

You set speed in mm/s not in %. So 50mm/s = 100%

So if you check the speed in in the printer it will Show 100%.

If you change it to e.g 50% you will print with 25mm/s.

Additionally, the first layer as a different print speed (in mm/s) and then it will increase to the speed you specified.

All right, thank you.

Would there be an incompatibiity between a CUra version 14.x and a more recent firmware that comes with this recent machine (when Cura 15.x was out) ?

I dont think so.

For the fans they are progressively being activated in order to reach the given speed at a specified height. These can be found in the expert settings of cura.

There is no compability issue that we know of. I'd be very suprised if there was one.

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
