how to make 3d printer faster

Why do my 3D prints take so long?

Because the print head moves significantly slower on walls than infill, adding more surface area (and thus a longer wall) significantly increases print time. This means that a smaller part with more intricate surface details can take longer to print than a larger, simple part.

How fast does my 3D printer actually print?

Although there are exceptions, most 3D printers use millimeters per hour (mm/hr) as the metric by which their printing speed is measured. A fused deposition modeling (FDM) printer, for instance, has an average 3D printing speed of about 100 mm/hr.

How do I reduce print time?

Using a larger nozzle and bigger layer height Bigger layer height will reduce print time. If accuracy does not matter, you can choose for printing with a larger nozzle and maximum layer height. The maximum layer height is 75% of the nozzle diameter. This means that with a 0.8mm nozzle you can build a layer of 0.6mm.
