Ultimaker 2 with 35W heater cartridge

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody,

this week my heater cartridge of my UM2 needed to be replaced because of a broken cable. So I ordered a new one labeled "Only compatible with the Ultimaker 2 family". After I replaced the cartridge the temperature of my UMO2 overshoots and oscillates in a range of +/- 10 °C.

I noticed that there is only one version with 35W available. The original Ultimaker 2 without the extrusion upgrade was shipped with a 25W cartridge. So I took the PID values from the UM2+ which uses the 35W cartridge -> No Problems.

 

M301 P10.03 I1.5 D70.00M500

 

It would be nice to have an option in the settings menu for selecting the cartridge version.

So did I something wrong or is that the normal behavior with a 35W cartridge? I didn't find the old 25W version

Well that certainly should be clear when you buy a 35W heater. Specially if inly says Ultimaker 2 Family.

Indeed your changes where perfect if the heater is 35W. Oficial firmware doesn't allow you to change pid of the heater, but @tinkergnome firmware does. Is much more flexible and it allows you to even change the esteps if you ever need it (along with some pretty useful options).

Also @sandervg maybe the heaters are being mislabeled? Because it could be slightly problematic for novice users I think. Just my 2 cents.

Anyhow you fixed your issue perfectly @jofleck

Perfect :)Then I´m not worried while printing :)

And thats the problem. The heaters aren't labeled as a 35W heater. In the moment I haven´t a use case for a more powerful heater. I don't care about waiting a few seconds longer for heating up. I just wanted a replacement which works out of the box and I think many other users too :).

    • 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.
