Anyone actually see a 30% print speed increase in 1.4

I wonder how it should be possible to damage the extruder by reducing the extrusion temperature with a certain mod. In worst case there is a clogged nozzle, which can be exchanged within seconds.

Nothing about Z-Tem* here I also used it time to time.

You have to see Z-Renegade extruder he posted pictures and mods of this somehow it looks as reprap crashed with Zortrax god know how many "mods" he done in his garage since that time ;)

I see no temperature difference for the Z-ABS profile - it has been stable for a long time now over many versions of Z-Suite. Printer firmware is a different story - I believe changes have been made to the temperature control loop, maybe to improve heating speed, that slightly change the temperature profile over time, especially at the time of print launch, but these have not been a problem for me.

I have not heard any sounds that sound like something is breaking, but the printer certainly sounds different with the fast moves - I love to see it moving quickly for "idle" moves now, it was always frustrating to watch it move slowly when not even extruding :)

This is from the 1.4.1 changelog:

right_dark.png  Minimal required fimware version is 0.0.8 due to performance problems while using "high speed" option

And that's most probably the reason you did not hear anything bad (being on FW >= 0.0.8)

another thing...

If we have learned that the faster printing speed only works with a certain Z-Suite / Firmware level combination, the same might (is most probably) be true for the temp overshoots I (and some others) experience.

My previous posts about this told already that this does not happen when using older Z-Suite Versions (I think it was < 1.2).

Ah, thanks, I hadn't seen that. And I haven't tried 1.4.1 yet, only 1.4.0 :)

275 + 60 = 335º. In practice, the heater does not even have the power to reach this temperature unless maybe you are running it in a sauna.

Bingo!

How did you get that picture of me?!?!?

Haha nice :) Z-auna

Actually this is the difference between 1.4.1 and 1.4.0 (that they request / check for minimum firmware versions).

And this should prevent printer damage IMHO which was not ensured in 1.4.0

what is the a difference between z-suite and firmware?

Z-Suite is the slicer application program that you run on your computer. The firmware is the machine control program that runs on the embedded processor in the printer. Firmware is updated by putting a special update.bin file on an SD card and starting the printer.

I see, Thanks for clearing that. So what I get now is that you need at least a .08 firmware or the high speed option on z-suite will cause performance problems. right?

No  ;)

You need at least FW 0.0.8 to get the high speed option to work with Z-Suite 1.4.1 sliced ZCode.

With Z-Suite 1.4.0 (wich is not available anymore) you could use such ZCode on older firmware but it causes noises that I would tell to probably damage your printer if used for longer.

and why wouldn't anyone update to the latest firmware anyway?

because that newer firmware might make some unofficial options unstable that I like to use further while I don't need the new fancy functions

I thought the infill % had changed so I loaded up the old reliable V0.9.6 to take a look (forgot it did not render infill at the time) and noticed something odd. The older version is a bit faster in printing time and had less material used which leads me to think the infill had gotten a bit thicker then before. this model would use up 9 more grams and take 17 more minutes with the newer software, could I get an explanation of this or is the old software just off by a lot?

Tinfoil hat time yet?

Michael, the claim for 30% speed increase was for the high speed option only, did you compare accordingly?

What you ser on this thread is a lot of people trying different combinations of software version / Fw to achieve some results or understand machine behavior. A lot of people desiring some degree of software openness. If Z-Suite had a little of this… It will not be Z-Suite.

What I would ask Santa, now that I am a grown good boy, is a Premium version of Z-Suite, payed version, only for out of warranty customers, with a beautiful premium tab that let’s we enter on tweakerland!

The M200 is a very good machine but I'm tired of :
- questionable updates
purely marketing notifications
- system too closed
- lack of flexibility
- lack of options in Z-suite for a professional use

I just ordered some new machines and are not Zortrax

They had me wear…

Professional options for use as in what?

What new machines you have ordered ? I search a machine with 350x350mm in X,Y with the same Buildquality as Zortrax M200 ?
