MadeSolid PET+ Ultimaker 2 Firmware & setting questions

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just recently purchased the Ultimaker 2 Extended-and am interested in printing with PET+ as there was a project I really wanted to duplicate that was printed in PET+ on YouMagine.

I was wondering does the Made Solid firmware for Ultimaker 2 also work on the Extended and Go versions of the Ultimaker 2? Does the firmware from MadeSolid just add in the PET+ functionality? Or can I set this manually on my Ultimaker Extended?

Here's the link to their page:

Thanks for your help!

There is no reason to touch firmware to print pet. What they offer is a cura profile. Basically how to optimise your print settings. I did not look at the settings they offer but in my experience pet prints fine on UM2 at higher temps. I guess at least 245c. This will shorten the life of your ptfe (the little white thing in you printhead) which can relatively easy be replaced. but best to keep a spare.

Thanks for the great advice! I also emailed MadeSolid, and I just received an email from MadeSolid's CTO David Rorex--and they also tell me not to touch the firmware on the Ultimaker 2 Extended as they are working on updated instructions which should be on their website in a few days :)
