I have an Ultimaker 2+ and would like to print a logo over an acrylic sheet (glued to the machine plate) or over an aluminum plate or even over a basic surface previously printed in PLA.

If a level the machine to print to this this new surface will the print work correctly? 

 

thanks

Celso

    Looks good, so did you just replace the glass bed with a sheet of acrylic? Did you heat it and did it stick ok?

    Hi Ishy

     

    I taped the sides of the acrylic sheet over the glass and resetted the printing to this new height. I used 80º C to help the adhesion of the PLA over the acrylic.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
