Ultimaker 2 - Volume per Second

Recommended Posts

Can anyone from Ultimaker, or anyone with a UM2 already who has analyzed it in detail (Joergen?) give us some sort of idea on the maximum volumetric throughput of the extruder at at least some typical printing temperatures for PLA and ABS?

It would be very helpful when trying to diagnose folks' extrusion-related problems...

Joergen seems to be very busy these days, but I'll ping him about possibly responding to your query in this thread. Joergen did report the throughput to me but he also drills out his nozzles (or uses larger ones from MG) so I'd rather he answer your question here and provide any details himself, if he has time to make a quick post.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
