3d Printing movement speed doesn't obey settings

No matter what speed I set the 3d printer to, the carriage moves waaaaaay too fast. This is causing overextruded corners and severely underextruded walls. I have unchecked the automatic cooling option as I heard this can cause the issue, and the printer still doesn't obey my speed settings. How do I fix this?

Update (03/17/2016)

I'm using Slic3r, and I've attached the settings photos.

Update (03/19/2016)

I'm using Windows 7 in the USA, here are the printer and laser gcode files. The printer matches the settings exactly, the laser is set to 50% movement speed, but no matter what speed I set it to it still shows F60000 weirdly enough.

Update (03/22/2016)

Alright. I've not updated the firmware by following the walkthrough. Unfortunately the problem persists: I set the speed to 10 mm/s on all options and it still doesn't print slowly. Using Slic3r. I'd really like to print some things :(

Update (03/22/2016)

Does the same thing with CuraEngine slicer

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Oh, wow, these settings are very far from BoXZY specs. Is this on purpose? For normal PLA printing it would be very hard to have a successful print. Are you printing with PLA? If so, your print temperature is too high for typical hatchbox PLA in BoXZY. The biggest issue with print settings is the 0.5 nozzle diameter setting, this works best between 0.3mm and 0.4mm (nozzle is 0.4, but with 0.35 usually gives good results). If you did not intend to adjust your settings, please let @Justhelper know, he can provide you with the BoXZY factory settings.


The temperature is higher because that's what worked so far, I'm using inland pla. I set the speed so low to prove the point that even when it was set this low it was not obeying the speed input. The nozzle setting was a mistake, these were just calibration proof settings, so I didn't change the nozzle.

The main problem really is that the speed settings are not being obeyed.


I posted information for the speed issue in the thread regarding your laser question.


I looked at what was written and don't know how to use that to fix my predicament. I know the carriage can move slowly because manual gcode input shows that it can. However, interpretation of the gcode after it has been imported as a file results in speeds not listed in the code. No matter what speeds I set it to, it moves extremely fast.


Ok, I fully understand at this point, I'm very sorry I didn't catch on sooner. I will ask more questions in the future. I assumed you were trying to reach speeds below 1" per minute. This is definitely a gcode output error. Could you tell me what version of windows are you running and what country are you in? In the meantime could you provide me with a copy of the gcode output for the laser and 3d printer? You can save these in the window for editing gcode.

Have you tried manually altering the G-code after slicing is complete?

Also try CuraEngine and play with settings shown here.

Good luck.

Yep, I tried that. As long as the gcode was being read via complete code it was a problem. The same code fed line by line went fine. I'll have a look at CuraEngine too.

Are you using Cura or Slic3r to slice your 3d printing files? Could you provide photos of the settings you are using? All of them if you can.
