Printer Speed



  • I have spent all day working through my configurations and finally have things working. I swapped from a stock ender CR-10 v2 controller to the duet 2 wifi. When I was printing with the stock controller, my cura slicer was all set up and working fine. I didn't make any changes in the cura slicer other than changing the gcode flavor from Marlin to RepRap, which I assume is correct.

    The issue is the printer is now gawd awful slow and pauses a lot within the same layer. I am not sure what other changes need to be made in the cura slicer to finally get the printer to print like it was with the stock controller running Marlin 2.0x bugfix.

    Here is the start of my gcode in the machine settings of cura. I already commented out the M420 S1 command as that threw and error the first time I tried to run a print.

    Anything else I need to do now that I have switched to a Duet 2?

    By the way, I tried printer by loading the file over the web interface and via the SD card, all with the same results.

    Thanks.

  • I should note that when I auto home or do a bed level or manually move the bed or z axis, the printer speeds are fast and match what I have in the config.g file, so I am pretty confident it is something to do with the cura slicer. I am using cura 4.7.1.

    Remove this section from the Cura start gcode. It's intended for marlin printers and is setting your speeds low.

    Your speed and jerk setting should be set in your config.g



  • Perfect! Thanks, that did the trip. I am now officially fully converted over to a duet 2 setup!
