XStrand with Ultimaker 2+ usage

Recommended Posts

Posted · XStrand with Ultimaker 2+ usage

In general there are hardly any limits to the masterials you can use on an um2. probably the biggest limit is use of materials that need a very high temperature (fe peek..)

 

In the case of Xstrand and other "filled" materials you better use a hardened nozzle, like a 0.6mm Olson ruby. Filled materials can also wear out you feeder, so if you want to use a lot of filled materials you may want to upgrade the feeder to a bondtech.
