Thicker than 0.2mm layer?

I'm just wondering how thick layers you could print with UM2? Especially when working some bigger objects I would like to make quick and rough prints at first to see how they works etc...

Can I print thicker layers than 0.2? And if yes how much thicker? Has anyone tried?

    I did and for my UM2 it doesn't go so well..

    I usually print at 50mm/s so 0.2 shouldn't even come near the limit extrusion wise.

    At 0.15+ for me the fill lines stop touching.

    I don't know if this is some problem specific to my printer. According to Roberts guide this should be related to the short belts' tension but the provided solution hasn't helped me.

    I did a print with 0.3 during a ultievening at 50mm/s. The component was usable but had quite a bit underextrusion. I increased the flow to i think 110% and also i speededup to 130% at places due to the limited time. I think i printed at 230.
