Hello there,

 

I hope you can help me here.

I need to print with Ultimaker PC filament  with my Ultimaker 3 printer and I am getting an error message because the build plate is taking to long to reach the correct temperature that in this case is 107 degrees.

I am using the advance printing kit with the front plastic cover and the room where the printer is is more than 20 degrees.

 

Any tips and advises?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Kind regards

 

Fulvio

    Hi @Fulv,

     

    I'll think the UM3 max bed temp is 100 deg., Celsius.

    I know that UM PC advice using bed temp at 110 deg., C.

    However, PC in general say/use (80-120) deg., Celsius.

    On my UM2E+ I'm using a simple top hat, that's covering the top and prevent "cold air" from direct inflow from above.

    This has proven good for me I'm able to print with nylon and Adamant S1 with this printer..

    I'll think if you can keep the bed temperature stable at, say 105 deg. C with a top hat you will be good..

    But this will sure be in the experimental area..

     

    Here is a picture of how I did it, with  four support hocks, ofc made with this printer: 🙂

    For sure, the front is covered as well.

    Good Luck

     

    Thanks
