New UM2+ arrived but LED lights are about half as bright as UM2 ?

Recommended Posts


I've been running a UM2 extended for 18 months now and am very happy with it

I needed more capacity so my UM2+ extended arrived today

Can anyone explain why the LEDs on the new model are much dimmer than the older version?

I've been into Tune / LED Brightness and both are at 100% but the new printer is really much dimmer.

Apart from looking different, this is not as good for photographing models and I was hoping to make consistent timelapses.

Is there any way I can change this?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
