2 GB limit for SD Card in Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need to use new SD card for my Ultimaker 2. It says in manual:""

SD-card: Secure Digital memory card that can store digital data. The card that can be used with the Ultimaker has to be an SD-card and not an SDHC card. It has to be formatted with FAT16 or FAT32 with a maximum capacity of 2GB. ""

Is it true with new firmware also? Can I use 8 or 16 or 64 GB SD card?

I am asking this as I am having hard time finding 2 GB SD card. They say it is no more available.

Can I use micro SD card with adapter?

I don't know the official specs, but the cards in my two UM2's are both SanDisk 4GB SDHC cards, Class 4, and both were delivered with the printer from Ultimaker. They are from begin 2015.

The "class" is about the maximum data transfer speed that the card can read or write, which is important for HD-video (usually requires Class 10). But I think for 3D-printing anything will do, since everything else in the system will be slower anyway...

    • "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.
