Separate UM2 threads?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering...

Spending a lot of time, filtering the right info for yourself as a reader.

Is it time for a separate UM2 Thread/Forum, with all the UM2's flying all over the world this week?

Guess they will have some different tips/tricks (no problems :-P ) than our old printers.

I don't think it is a good idea. Both Ultimaker machines share many concents so any additional tips and help might benefit both. Since posters usually state which Ultimaker they have, there shouldn't be any problems.


I also think it would not be a great idea, as all the questions regarding UM1 are relevant for the UM2, and vise versa :)

maybe for some technical aspects of the machine you can create a separate thread.

Couldn't the forum just be tweaked in some way to ask a user if his/her post is specifically oriented towards one of the two UM versions... If a user then chooses one of them, the post headline has a prefix added... something along those lines?

It does not seem complicated.


In addition we could add up, tris the choice to display only the version concerned.


Either nothing is checked: We track the posts UM1 + UM2

1 is checked either Um: We see only the posts UM1

2 is checked either Um: We see only the posts UM2


But sorting becomes necessary indeed!

    • "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.
