How to remove the Nozzle operation temperature of UM 2


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to remove the Nozzle operation temperature of UM 2

I want to print some filaments which better temp range at 140~155℃

but UM 2 have limit (180~260℃)

I tried to change the code type (Marlin, Rearap)

but the printer still still no output any filaments from nozzle

how can I do?

    By default I believe the feeder won't rotate at any given moment if the temperature dips below 170C.  This line of code in Configuration.h:

    #define EXTRUDE_MINTEMP 170

    So one option is to change that line of code and rebuild Marlin but this is not trivial and would take an experienced programmer maybe 2 to 5 hours the first time (just a few minutes the second time).  I did post how to do this:



    HOWEVER there is another option.  You can enable cold extrudes with the gcode M302 (allow cold extrudes):

    M302 S0


    So you could add that gcode early on in the program - I guess just before you first move the extruder


    I'm not sure what you mean by "um 2 have limit".  Are you talking about the TUNE menu?  Or Cura?  If the Material settings on the printer itself have a lower limit as well then you can go back to cura and go into "machine settings" (tricky to find) and change the options on your gcode flavor to Marlin instead of "ultigcode".  This will let you set the nozzle temp in Cura (or you can do it by hand editing the gcode.


    Normally, for UM2 printers, the temp is controlled by the filament type on the printer itself but most printers (including every other Ultimaker printer type) don't do this and you control the temperature in Cura.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
