My ultimaker 2 is giving me much longer times than cura? and when I turn the speed up to 200% it doesnt half the time estimate??? Am i doing something wrong?

The short answer is: Don't look at the time that is displayed on the machine, trust cura.

Slightly longer answer. The machine estimates the remaining time based on how long a layer takes to lay down and how many remains (I don't know the exact mechanism behind it, it's slightly more complicated than that) which is far from accurate as you might have tiny layers at the start and huge ones at the end or vice versa. cura's estimates on the other hand are usually very close to real time.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
