I was wondering what was the best room temperature for day to day use,

of an Ultimaker S5 printer.

 

I am asking this, because I live in temperate zone.

My workshop can get quite cold in winter (about 10°C during the night sometimes 5°C when it's really cold )

In summer it can get quite hot around 30°C (and little more at times)

 

Regarding humidity it's Ok.

I have checked.

 

It's more temperature wise that I am concerned.

And since winter in approaching, I was wondering if it's the right place to do some printing ?

Or should I move my printing operations somewhere more temperate.

 

Any incentives on that matter are welcome. Thanks.

 

regards,

Thomas.

    Ultimaker says the best operation temperature is between 15°C and  32°C

    I think a few degrees less is also no problem, but 5° is quite cold. But I would try it, depending how often it gets 5°C and how often you print overnight in these nights.
