UMO Travel speeds?

Postby LePaul » July 21st, 2016, 10:43 pm

Default is 150

I know some crank it way up...180...200 or higher

What's a good way to know if you have it just right, too low, or too high?

I used 250mm/s. But I have a direct drive and GT2 belts...

Using 250 too, no belts/drive updates.
It's fine if it's well adjusted and oiled :), just for dedicated prints which might fall over I use less.

I stay at 180mm/s since changed mxl to gt2. I suppose I could push it up, but since it works and works, I don't touch it.

Ofc, oil, care, and some hugs from time to time.

Hugs... :D

I was curious about that setting for a while. I pushed it up to 180 and prints some come out fine...but was always wondering what you gain going beyond that

The faster it moves from a to b, less chance of dripping in between. And ofc faster print time.
