The best feed rate

What is the best feed rate for extruded Nema 17
And the best speed of cartisian motor x y z?


  • 20mm/s is very good. It gives good quality and equally quality extrusion. Only drawback is that it is incredibly slow, which is why most users print faster. For that reason most users print faster. If you limit outside speed to 40mm/s and go for inner perimeter to 60 and infill to 80 you might get still good prints at much reduced print times. If you have a bowden system you should not spread speeds to wide as adjustment to new speeds take a while so you will see thinner/thicker lines in parts if sppeds vary too much.
