Ultimaker 2+ Height-Axis print speed

Recommended Posts

I'm searching for data on what is the Print Speed (Build Speed) for Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 3 in mm/h?

This data should be height-axis print speed, or how much mm in height (Z-axis) can Ultimaker make within one hour.

I'm aware that this value depends on layer height, but It seams I can't find anywhere official info regarding this build speed, or how to calculate it (other than measure it).

I would appreciate if you could share it with me, or point me out how to calculate it.

Also if you have already done measurement feel free to share your results ;)

lots of parameters to be considered here (maybe to many to get to an answer ?)

  • nozzle diameter and type (example brass, stainless steel or even ruby tipped)
  • type of materiel
  • even variety of print head I can think of at least three for the UM2
  • heat capacity of the head heater (two or three variants for the UM2)
  • the list goes on and on .....

then you will need to consider the build quality/detail resolution you want to achieve, as the absolute best build quality starts with a small nozzle and is better if printed slowly

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
