Very low temperature needed

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

 

(Temperatures in celcius)

 

I am experimenting with making my own wax based filament, and for that I need a very low nozzle temperature.

The specifications specify 170 as the lowest the UM2 can go. but I need to go all the way down to 50 degree in nozzle and 30 degree on build place. Is there any way to obtain such low temperatures? I am open to alternate firmware if nessecary.

 

Best,

   Morten

The PID settings for the nozzle are tuned for around 180C to 240C.  So you might find the temperature is oscillating by 5C or more.  If so I can help you fix that.  Hopefully, you won't have to do anything as the PID system is pretty robust.

    • "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.
