UM 2+ Flow Rate


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM 2+ Flow Rate

I have a UM2+ (upgraded from a UM2) that prints beautifully, but with the .80 nozzle, I have to set the flow multiplier in Simplify3D to 140% to get past underextruding bottom and top layers.  I'm using 20mm/second speed and 0.40 layer height.


I have never been able to get a print sliced in Cura because I can't adjust the overall flow rate up that high.


Is this normal, or is it compensating for a problem somewhere?

    If you want full control over material settings in Cura (including setting the flow rate), change the gcode flavor from "Ultimaker 2" to "Marlin". You can then set the flow rate to anything you like.

        New features
        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.
