Confused by TPU settings

Hi,

I have some Sainsmart TPU, which prints OK, but I am trying to improve it. Everything I read says print real slow, typically 20mm/s but if I look at the settings in Prusa Slicer I see nothing close to 20. What specifically should I change?

Isn't the idea of the profiles to customize these settings, have I missed somthing?

Thanks

Paul

To define the maximum speed for a specific material in PrusaSlicer you use the Max Volumetric Speed setting.

It adjusts/limits the print speeds automatically, so you don't have to tweak any other settings.

Ah thanks,  that's very useful, I was not aware of that setting. I'm just starting a print, have lowered it to 20mm/s and have added the Avoid Crossing Perimeters to reduce stringing.

Lets see how it comes out

I am having issues as well with my Hatchbox TPU.  Mostly Jamming, and layer adhesion.  How did you fix go?

I must admit, with those settings, on 10mm detail with no crossing perimeters, and the MVS settings, i've been having some good success.

Here's a phone case I just printed, used as a test ground for the 5 Sainssmart TPU filament pack.

I also changed the Contact Z distance in the supports section to 3mm, it makes them removable.
