I've been trying to use Cura (latest version) to slice files and then print using Mattercontrol. The files I have been using have all successfully printed when sliced and printed with Mattercontrol.
I wanted to see the difference in output and the files do print, but it looks like the X and Y have a huge acceleration factor and the printer almost jumps when carriage changes direction or stops.
My machine has the 32 bit upgrade that uses smoothieware so there is no information available (or maybe it's secret) about using Cura with a 32 bit Pulse XE - Only the D model (not 32-bit) has any information available.
I defined a "Custom Printer" in Cura 4.9 Beta and chose the "Marlin" G-code flavor.
I copied the start and end G-code directly from the Mattercontrol Printer tab to use in Cura:
G28 ; home all axes
G1 Y5 X5 Z0.8 F1800
G1 X100 Z0.3 E25 F900
G1 E-2 F2400
; End G-code
; Retract and move away
G1 E-[retract_length] F[retract_speed]
G0 X5 Y215 F[travel_speed]
M104 S0 ; turn off temperature
M140 S0 ; turn off heat bed
M106 S0 ; turn off layer fan
M84 ; disable motors
I then change a few slice settings in Cura, slice the file, save the G-code and then import it into the Printer tab in Mattercontrol and everything seems to work fine - except for the violent motion.
Can anyone give me some idea where acceleration and speeds values should be for quality print? I'm assuming that Cura must default to the max values if not explicitly set.
Any insight into using Cura with the 32 bit Pulse XE would be appreciated!
