Ultimaker 2 Heated bed is taking forever to heat.

Recommended Posts

The heated bed on my UM2 takes a long time to heat up. It is usually about 20 minutes to get to 95C, then an extra 10 minutes to get to 100C. It never surpasses 101 even after hours. I have heard that the early model printers, wich mine is, had loose build plate connector wires, I tried giving the wires a shake but it didn't help. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
