Speed difference between two UM2 machines

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have 2 UM2 machines, one bought spring 2014 and the second bought autumn 2015.

Both have the same firmware but the latest model is printing/moving ~50 % faster than the older.

I have reset both printers and checked all settings. The gcode file is the same, and has been tested with the same SD card.

I have no idea what causes the problem, but this issues does that I can't print with the same settings.

I've also done the extrusion test for the machines, and the older model can print 3 mm3/s fine, but the newer fails the test right away.

Both with new nozzles/PTFE couplers (And the iRoberts feeder and spool holder)

Any help on how to fix this issue - namely the speed difference.

    • "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.
