Cura print speed?

Recommended Posts

If I set say print speed to 30 in basic settings, then go to advanced, inner shell speed is 60 and outer shell is 30.

If I change the print speed in basic settings to whatever value and then go to advanced, inner is still 60 and outer is still 30.

So I not sure I understand what the speed control in the basic settings means, if nothing then changes in the advanced.

It would make sense to have a basic speed, and then the possibility to set percentages of this speed in advanced, for the various components of the print. However if in advanced everything is expressed in absolute values and those values do not change when I set the speed in basic settings, then I am missing something here.

Thanks for any explanation on the meaning of the speed in the basic settings.

The Print Speed setting in the Basic tab is used for any of the four speed values in the Advanced tab when they are set to zero. If a non-zero value is entered in the Advanced tab for Infill, Top/Bottom, Outer Shell or Inner Shell, it takes precedence over the Basic Print Speed.

Try hovering your cursor over one of the values.

    • "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.
