Overall speed setting in Cura?

Recommended Posts


on the UM2 LCD panel there is a very useful function to change the print speed percent wise. So I can change the speed during printing from e.g. 100% to 80% or even from 100% to 115%. This reduces all speeds simultanously (first layer speed, infill speed, bottom/top leyer speed, inner perimter speed, outer perimeter speed, etc.) simulatnoulsy. This is very convenient since I don't have to change each speed one by one.

Is there something similar available in Cura?

When I want to test a new profile I created in Cura then on the printer I change the speed to get a better result depending on what I see when watching the printer.

Then I realize e.g. slowing down the speed to e.g. 80% leads into a better print result.

Now back in Cura I want to reduce the speed also to 80%. But in Cura I have to calculate 80% one by one for each speed.

Is there any feature I can set 80% only one time for all speeds?

    • "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.
