Maximum rectangle that can be printed on UM2 +

Recommended Posts

This has probably been done to death, but what is the maximum rectangle/square you can print on an Ultimaker 2+?

Website states 223 x 223 but I've been reliably informed it isn't that by a someone looking to print the biggest possible rectangle/square with all first layer touching build-plate?

Hi Franny500,

I attached a Cura image for you which shows a bit what you were looking for.

The fact is that there are glass clips on the bed which take a way a few mm in the corners of the print bed. So the largest square will be a little bit smaller than for example the print I choose. I would advice to go no larger than 221x221 mm to reduce the risk of your printhead slamming against the sides. Other than that you are good to go!

    • "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.
