Zsuite test M200 versus M300 - Abysmal printing speed


#1

Hello,

We are looking to upgrade our M200 to probably M300 dual but after testing the same piece on ZSUITE the m200, m300 dual and m300 plus I dont see why we would upgrade. The printing speed is extremely slower than on the m200 despite me trying to replicate as close as possible the same settings.

14 hours versus 26 hours versus 19 hours

Hello? Is there something we are not doing right, because we want to upgrade.
