Speed settings

Normal speed

These settings are the fastest possible settings to maintain a print that finishes for 90 percent successfully. Printing slower will result in better finish and better reliability.

Normal settings from Prisma are 60 percent of the fast settings.

Fast speed

Infill speed [mm/s] = volume flow [mmˆ3] / layer height [mm] / nozzle size [mm]

Outer wall speed [mm/s] = 0,6 x Infill speed [mm/s]
Inner wall speed [mm/s] = 0,6 x Infill speed [mm/s]
Speed top and bottom [mm/s] = 20mm/s
Support infill speed [mm/s] = 0,6 x Infill speed [mm/s]
Support roof speed [mm/s] = 0,6 x Infill speed [mm/s]

Example

PLA on 0,1 layer height and with 0,4 mm nozzle:

Fast

Infill speed = 3,5 mmˆ3 (volume flow) / 0,1 mm (layer height) / 0,4 mm (nozzle size) = 87,5 mm/s fast speed
Other speeds: 0,6 x 87,5 mm/s (Infill speed) = 52,5 mm/s

Normal

Infill speed = 52,5 mm/s x 0,6 = 31,5 mm/s
Other speeds = 18,9 mm/s
