Does the 2+ come with smoothers already installed from UM ?, if not are they needed ?, they seem to be a popular printer on other printers but not heard about them on UM printers

Do you mean to.o surface smoothing?

 

If yes, Ultimaker Cura has an ironing feature. I have not used it but have heard from others that it works fine. 

 

Not having a 2+ I can only assume that the feature will work with it.

No the UM don't have it incl. UM3, not sure about S5.

 

There is a thread somewhere here on the forum with a long discussion about it. Some have implemented it and had success but there are some side effects as far as I can remember.

I don't think so, but the smoothers are cheap and plug easily between the existing connections, so you could give it a try and find out yourself.

 

But try to find the thread here, there are a lot of additional informations if you really want to do it. 

 

I can remember that people were first happy, the surface was better but not completely. But then someone posted about a negative side effect but can't remember what it was.

    • "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.
