External Temperature question.....

Recommended Posts

Posted · External Temperature question.....

How much do external temperatures affect an Ultimaker 2 print?

If I place an Ultimaker 2 in my garage for example, where it can get rather cold during the winter months, considering the bed etc is heated, would it affect prints?

I have no direct experience on this but I would say that if the printer is fully enclosed and you wait for the internal environment, not just the print bed, to warm up then it should be OK. If dimensional accuracy is important then I have found recently that leaving the object in the printer case for longer, to cool down, reduces the shrinkage; possibly even more important in your scenario.

ABS, XT and Nylon will detatch from the bed if sudden cool down occur.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
