[SOLVED] Skeinforge starts slow
July 13, 2011 12:10PM
My skeinforge (40) profile was doing too much retraction too fast and it was causing jams in my extruder so I started from scratch. But now the printer move really really slowing from home to where the print begins. I can't get a good first layer because all the plastic in the nozzle drips out on the way to start printing. Anyone know why it's doing this? It seems like it must be default behavior but why on earth would anyone want this?

This can happen if you have your Z axis speed limited too much in the Limit tab. The printer ends up making a long move at the slow Z axis speed and it takes forever.

Thanks, that was exactly it! The default was 1mm. I just turned limit off.
