Ultimaker 2+ Height-Axis print speed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Height-Axis print speed

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
