UM2 Print time is much slower than my other printer?

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?

    Of course I would forget to change that before taking the pic. I feel dumb.

    BUT, I had changed that of course before. It is still 20 minutes longer on the UM when infill, layer time and travel are all the same...

    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.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
