UM2+ What materials does it really print?

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit confused, on Ultimakers site it is stated regarding UM2+:

Optimized for:PLA, ABS, CPE, CPE+, PC, Nylon, TPU 95A

 

But as I can understand by reading here on this supreme UM forum the TFM Isolator Coupler cant handle more than 240°C.

 

Some of the above mentioned filament types seems to be needing well over 240°C.

 

Can someone tell me more about this.

The TFM should be fine with the print temperature of the UM materials. However, there is not a sharp line in terms of degradation of the Teflon. The more you print high temp materials, the faster it will degrade. But you can always just replace it and continue printing - the TFM coupler is a consumable.

 

If you want to print regularly at high temps, I would recommend the I2K isolator from 3DSolex in addition to the TFM (or the TF2K combination from 3DSolex which is TFN+I2K).

    • 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.
