Help me with the heater..

Recommended Posts

I have a question about the heater of the Ultimaker, How does the heater warm up to 200Degrees? Can you give me some information? Its for school.

It is a cartridge heater, with a resistive heater wire inside a ceramic padding inside a metal sheath. Other printers are just abusing a big resistor as a heater.

here is a video that explains a bit of the technology:

 

keep in mind the UM is using a regular cartridge, not a flexwatt cartridge

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
