Doesn't the UM2GO work with the new filaments?

Seems Cura doesn't have a "materials type" selection when using a UM2GO. does this mean that UM2GO does not work with the new filaments?

The UM2GO should be equipped with a TFM or TFT isolator for high temperatures and with a heated bed.  An Olsson or Matchless block with a 35W heater is of advantage.

So a standard UM2GO is not well suited for Nylon and PC.

The new filaments will have difficulties on the 2go due to the lack of heated bed.

You can get the heated bed kit from 3dsolex or one of their reseller's which will make printing with these materials more successful.

I would also recommend changing the PTFE coupler to a TFM or TFT coupler

Cool, Thanks. Will look into the upgrades. Do you know if at least TPU would work in the standard UM2GO?
