Hi all

 

I have an ultimaker 2+ and recently also bought a Lulzbot Taz 6 with the MOARstruder and was curious to see how far the Ultimaker 2+ 0.8 nozzle could be pushed.

I am not expert at 3D printing or adjusting these settings so excuse me for asking here.

 

PLA Material (Ultimaker)

UM 2+

0.8 mm nozzle

0.4 - 0.6mm layer height or max

 

As far as I know speed temp has to be fined tuned right?

    Well UM printers can print a volume of about 5 to 8 cubic mm/sec through a 0.4mm nozzle at 230C and the 0.8 has 4X the area so you should be able to push 20-30  mm^3/sec.  

    So for example if you want to approach those speeds I would do:

    line width=0.8

    layer height = 0.5mm (so thick!)

    print speed=50 to 75mm/sec

     

    If you multiply line width, layer height, print speed you get the volume rate of extrusion.  0.8 X 0.5 X 50 = 20mm^3/sec

    do you have to adjust the temp too or is that pre defined by the material PLA Ultimaker?

    I was not able to find anything to set the temp to 230 C.

     

     

     

    Also I know it is big ?. This is for rough prototyping only

     

    i have the moarstruder for a taz 6 and the s-Erde for inclass rough prototyping is great

     

    we have 4 um2+ in my class room so we might consider to use the 0.8 mainly now

    since often model studies is what students print

     

    we have one um3 for finer prints

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
