multi-parts outer contour faster?
March 14, 2012 06:17AM
Hi all,

I always use the feature to slow down the outer contour to improve the quality of the part, usually 0.6 of the normal speed.
However, I just noticed that when I print multiple objects at the same time, this nice feature is missing.

Anybody can explain me why this happens and if there is way way around it?

Many thanks,
Syncra

PS: just for clarity, for "outer contour" I mean the most external deposited line, the one that you see and touch!

Last time I checked it worked for me (skeinforge 49).

You do your multiples objects using the "multiply" module ?


Most of my technical comments should be correct, but is THIS one ?
Anyway, as a rule of thumb, always double check what people write.

No just stl file containing more than one object. I need to check this again, I'm worried now to "see wrong" and it actually slows down! smiling smiley

It could be that your small parts are small enough to print that the time it takes to print 1 layer is less than Cool -> Minimum Layer Time, so SF is slowing down your prints so they take at least that long to print (which is the speed you're used to seeing). When you're printing multiple objects at the same time, the time to print each layer is above Cool -> Minimum Layer Time so it can go faster.
