What print speed are you printing at most of the time?

    This is for plain ole PLA and medium quality prints.

    I have printed as fast as 68mm a sec and the temp at 206c with goodish results. Most of the time I run at 65mm a sec and the temp at 199c. I am running with a harden nozzle and Capricorn tubing thanks to my cat battling my original PFE tube.

    Just curious of what others run at normally.

    Been printing at 80mm/s base speed with great results, never tried more yet. Relying on S3D's great job of managing speed reduction when needed.
    The one thing to do is reduce the accelerations, I have 500 and jerk at 5 (default 1200/13) to keep corner accuracy.

    I am at 70 mm/s for most prints. Please note that the faster you go generally you will also need to increase the extrusion temperatures just a little.

    print speed to me is kinda meh lol. By the time firmware and speed overrides kick in the idea of XX.XXmm/s speed is kind of out the window. :D Up down left right, done today done tomorrow its all the same :D. I think most my machines are set to 50-65 mm/s and they likely never achieve that :D

    With my settings the 80mm/s are reached as soon as a segment is about 1.5cm long or so, i.e. pretty frequently.
