UM2 Print time is much slower than my other printer?

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 Print time is much slower than my other printer?

I am trying to track down the setting that is slowing my ultimaker2 to nearly 2/3rds the speed of my other printers.

I seem to have about the same settings for both, but the print time is much larger on my UM2.

(please note, even if I change the minimum layer time, and travel to match the Prusa settings, it still was over a half hour slower on this file.)

Is it just the difference between one printer being 1.75, and the UM2 being 2.85?

Or am I missing a setting somewhere?

Fill density 30% vs 100% makes a bit of a difference :)

Minimal layer time is much longer on the UM2. Travel speed is set faster on the Prusa. Bottom layer speed is set faster on the Prusa.

Prusa is a .4 nozzle.

That last picture I just took. I had the infill at 30, travel at 150 and minimal layer time at 5 on the UM

They are all the same now. still 20 minutes slower.

First layer time doesn't change it at all, less than a minute difference there.
