Changing print speeds do not change the estimated time to print

When I make changes to the print speeds then re-slice my model the estimated time to print does not change. In my last attempt I increased all of the speeds by 50% but the estimated time to print stayed at 2 hours and 4 minutes. I would expect there to be some change.

RE: Changing print speeds do not change the estimated time to print

If the part is small, the nozzle is likely never coming up to your original (lower) speeds, so setting them higher will make no difference. Acceleration and jerk settings and physical limits come into play. Check the speeds out in preview mode after slicing. Linear "speed" is not directly proportional to print times
