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.
