About Me



On The Web

  1. I have an UM2 extended that someone did modifications to. I am trying to revert the build plate back to the way it was and noticed the screws for the build plate clamps on the back two corners were missing when I purchased it years ago. I believe the UM2 guide for replacing clamps says they are lock nut and bolts.... but I cannot tell what size I am meant to purchase. Would anyone know?
  2. I'm looking for replacement parts for my Ultimaker 2. Searching the web I'm just finding UM2+ parts. Is the UM2+ basically the same as the UM2 and can the parts fit interchangeably? If not, where can one find UM2 parts?
  3. Hello everyone. I'm new here because I have start to hate this printer. I hope it is because of me... maybe I can't "configure it as it should be... Is there any default and working print settings for PLA? I know it is not Prusa, so it won't work straight away ... but how long time it has to take to finaly set it up? After 3 times bed calibration that is the "best" result I have got 😞 Here is some bridging test ... Here tolerance test ... all welded together... (elephant foot is on everything) Any advice what shou
  4. I am a teacher in the US who has an Ultimaker 2 printer. I would like to get numerous colors of filament for a project I will be doing with my students during an educational summer camp, and I have certain vendors I have to use per our district guidelines. My question is, will Makerbot PLA filament work for the project (link to specific product I'm considering purchasing: https://www.schoolspecialty.com/makerbot-true-color-large-pla-filament-10-pack-1542363)? Any feedback is appreciated!
  5. Hello I own a printer Ultimaker 2+ I have been having a serious problem with the printer for the last week. While I'm trying to print a file the printer turns off on its own after a few minutes and returns almost immediately. Τhe nozzle and built plate stay where printing stopped. I tried to update the firmware without any result. (my version is 2.6.2) I also did a factory reset and tried to use older version of cura.
  6. Hello everyone, I have been plagued for quite some time by an under-extrusion issue and I am at my wit's end. Below is the Problem, My general settings, Some context, and what I have tried as a result. Problem: As shown in the attached picture, 2 of my 3 Ultimaker 2+ machines have an under-extrusion issue. They both have the exact same amount of underextrusion. And it remains consistent through the entire part it prints, regardless of print size. The first layer will print perfect. Every layer after is under-extruded. Settings: Carbon Fiber HTPLA from Protop
  7. I need assistance with my Ultimaker2 printer. I had about 3 hours left on a 40 hour print and the feeder cylinder on the stepper motor came off. I was away from the printer when this happen and when I came back the nozzle was about .5 inches above the plastic part. I paused the printer and would like to know how I can go back and pick up where it left off. Is there a way to access the NC code from the printer? What options do i have? Is there something in Cura that will help? Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you.
  8. Hi, i have a serious problem with our Ultimaker 2+. After moving to a new building it was not possible to print any more - no material came out of the nozzle. After some attempts i solved the first problem - the spring in the feeder was worn out. But the change of the feeder didnt help. After some further examination i found out, that the temperture was too low. I had to change the setting for PLA from 200° to 260° (!) to get some print. I went on with my tries, i changed the PT100 to a new one, so i could lower the temperature to 230..240°. Then i tried a new heater, waht didn't change a
  9. I tried to print in Co-Polyester which requires high temperatures (nozzle 250-280°C, bed 100°C) on my UM2+. After several tries, always resulting in warping, the printer stopped dead with a power failure while printing. Ever since, the printer has a power failure, whenever I heat up the print bed. I checked the wiring and the resistance of the bed heating. The measured resistance of 3.3 Ohm seems reasonable for a heating element with about 165W at 24V. The power supply provides 24V when switched on a while after the last failure. Power stays on until I try to raise the
  10. Hello, do you have a board connect schema (the picture below is just an example) for all connectors to the Ultimaker 2+? I think that my 3d printer clearly has some of the wires connected incorrectly. Thank you.
  11. Selling Used UM2E+ !! will come with equivalent to 3 rolls of material (opened) for 1600USD or best offer + Shipping. I am an architecture student in New York City and have been only using the printer for moderate model printing, and looking for a new owner of this printer now that I am graduating soon. I've attached the receipt of purchase, print quality of models, and the printer itself in this post; I've used this printer to print models for MOMA for the Yugoslavia Exhibition in 2018 Summer, the print quality is amazing and prints at an amazing speed. - Printer will come wit
  12. Hallo zusammen, kann ich im Editor für meinen UM 2+ den G-Code so ändern, dass er mir nach dem Druck, vorm abkühlen das Filament komplett entlädt? Danke im Voraus und liebe Grüße, Tobias
  13. Dear Community, I have been using 3D printers since 2012 and my Ultimaker 2+ since 2016. Recently due to unfortunate circumstances, the printer fell on the ground from 1m height, the glass plate shattered and was replaced. I reassembled the gantry and luckily it still worked fine after calibrating the build plate, or so I thought. I now printed objects that fill the entire build plate and noticed that circles aren't perfectly round, rather oval. Googling came to the conclusion that the frame was indeed bent, I can measure squares being 88.7° instead of 90°. T
  14. Hello, So i have a Ultimaker 2+ since 2015 and some weeks ago i started a normal print with 3/4h and after 1h i came to the machine and the machine was tuned off. I tried to turn on again, no luck, no signal, no lights, nothing.... Started to dig, and the power adapter was fine, 24v on output everything fine.. Started to take off the main board and searching for burned components, and after a while i noticed a little "dot" on the regulator.. I thought "the regulator was gone", so, i ordered a bunch of them from farnell, same reference, and replace them, but after turn on the but
  15. Hello, The Problem: I recently had this problem where the UM2+ would not start because of the bed not heating up. So i ended up unscrewing the heat bed had found this on the connection terminal (See attached photo). The UM2+ has a uptime of 7080h where 3078h printing, with 2258m of fillament that has gone thru, over 5 years of use. Could this be thermal fatigue of the solder? It could be when the solder broke there was still a connection but with higher resistance creating heat that melted the wire issulation? How to resolve?: Would it be a
  16. Hi, my Ultimaker 2 extended is suddenly not heating up the heatbed to the expected temperature. The bed temperature stops randomly between 30° and 45° when it should go up to 80°. When I lower the bed temperature to the actual C° and heat up the nozzle, that the print can start, the bed heats up as normally did before and the wheel for manual choice of bed temperature does work again... This is strange...anybody an idea, whats going on and how to fix it? Thanks in advance, BR Thorsten
  17. Hello, I have upgraded my Ultimaker 2 to a Ultimaker 2+ using the official kit last December. I was quite happy with the upgrade until yesterday. I had to abort a long print twice and today again due to the reason that the bowden tube has been pushed out off the feeder after some hours of printing. 😞 Please find attached a picture. When I detected the issue the first time the bowden tube was pushed much more far away from the feeder. I really don't know how to solve this problem as I never had this with the Ultimaker 2. I already tried to find a solution but the rec
  18. My Ultimaker printer just stopped dead mid-print. All the lights are out. Power supply still plugged in. Blue indicator light on power supply still on. I switched the printer on & off several times....dead as a dodo. What do i do next?....Ideas? Can someone advise on how to check the power supply output properly for example?
  19. Sometimes my printer filament gets stuck. When I investigate I see a thick plug of plastic stuck in the end of the boden tube where it attaches to the hot end. It looks as though a large amount of melted material is retracted into the tube and then cools to form a plug. Is this a setting problem? how could there be so much melted material at the hot end that gets retracted into the tube? Thanks.
  20. I have a Ultimaker 2+ that I would like to sell. Ideally I would sell it to someone locally in the US. What is a good price I should expect it to sell it at?
  21. I'm having underextrusion issues ever since ive changed my block to a 3d solex block and changed my heater to a 35w. I thought that maybe the fan shroud was causing the problem so i changed it to laberns fan shroud. This seems to have fixed it somewhat but i still get underextrusion when my model cooling fans are on. Does anyone know why?
  22. Hi everybody. I want to replace all leds in my old UM2. It is rather easy to replace the strips on both sides but i could not find an easy way to replace the strip on top, without disasemble the whole front panel!:-( Any advice on how to do so, the easiest way, please? E.
  23. Does anyone have experience printing clear on the um2 or any 3d printer? If so, what settings and filament do you use. Any tips? Ive been getting decent results with colorfabb ht but i wanted to see is anyone else has been able to do better.
  24. Is TPU92A printable in the Ultimaker 2+?? I did read that 95A is supported
  25. Hello. My 3D printer won't heat up or sometime it will heat up and stop after the first few layers is printed. What should I check for to fix the problem? Thanks! Henry
