youll find that printing on the stock firmware that your prints will take much longer than your slicer thinks it will. this is because most printers print at acceleration speeds of 3000-9000. And the stock mpcnc firmware has its acceleration set at 400… jerk settings can also affect the speed quite drastically. since again most printers have a jerk setting of 15+ (by Marlin standards). where the mpcnc is set at 4. The stock settings are great for multi-tool use, i.e. routing, printing, etc. but if you intend to only print with your machine then you can start to experiment with faster acceleration and jerk speeds. i actually find that slower accel and jerk speeds give me screwed up flower looking circles. and higher speeds can actually improve the print quality somewhat. currently I am printing at 5500 accel with my jerk at 12-15 depending on the material I’m printing with. your results may vary…
