    After fiddling with flexible filament for a bit found all values for "speed" in MC have gone to the low values I was experimenting with.

    That was not expected, so I never noted the speeds I started with. Is there a "default" for various filaments? I looked a bit.

    Not really a default at the filament level.
    That is not to say it doesn't matter -- some flilaments (like TPU) require significantly slower speeds to print correctly.

    OK, suggested starting point for the R1?

    <shrug> This is from my Simplify3D profile for the R1 series.

    P.S. that is for pretty much anything except TPU -- for that you need to drop by at least a factor of 100.
    I'd suggest: 30 to 50 mm/sec MAX -- I use 15 myself for that.

    (the above pictured numbers are mm/min and the ones I just quoted are mm/sec)

    WOW! That's FAST! Oh . . . per MINUTE. Lessee . . . Times Pi, divide by 5, carry the zero . . . Sigh, math, what a concept
