The printer jumps around very fast causing skips


Staff member
For printers shipped prior to Jan 1, 2015 our Marlin firmware has high default acceleration settings. In slic3r we can define these settings, causing the firmware values to be overridden, but in many other slicing engines this isn't the case.

To fix this issue we released new firmware starting in 2015 which has default accelerations around 1100mm/sec depending on your setup. Check the Download section of our main website for our latest downloads.

For those interested the acceleration settings, they can be found in the configuration.h file of our firmware package around line #297
