Ultimaker 2 Heated bed replacement


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Heated bed replacement

The heated bed on my Ultimaker 2 has stopped working giving Error code ER02, I have checked the cables and swapped them over as suggested by Ultimaker but it looks like I need a replacement bed.

I have seen one advertised on Amazon which is a lot cheaper than those available here in the UK, has anyone fitted one of these Chinese made beds and are they worth the risk.

    Personally I would not do it. Cheap Chinese made beds can work, but can also catch fire or whatever. For a quality printer you should also buy good replacement parts, to be on the safe side.

    I added a china bed to ultimaker one many years ago. no problems up to now... make certain to use adequate wiring though since your fires are more likely to start there.

    Thanks Bob, still undecided and so checking all current wiring and soldered joints to try and pinpoint problem but if I have no success then will go for the cheaper option but carefully.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
