Upgrading from UM1 to UM2 , worth it?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Upgrading from UM1 to UM2 , worth it?

Hi,

I run a small online printing firm, and use 4 UM1, printing in PLA.

Fully upgraded, latest drive, V2 head, and all have heated beds.

These have proved very reliable, and I enjoy the quick loading, print speed, and quality.

I wish to "speed" things up, and improve quality. as I constantly have a Queue of jobs.

-----------------------------------------------------

Is the UM2 worth the upgrade?

Will it print faster? better?

I normally print at 0.15mm layer height at 70mm/s , 40 perimeters, 200 travel

How easy is it to load?

Slicing with simplify 3D.

I welcome your comments.

Cheers

Dave

I don't think it's worth the upgrade. Having said that if both my UMO and UM2 are available I always use the UM2.

I suggest you purchase a single UM2 and see if you like it any better. Or maybe wait a few months and get the UM2 extended.

The UMO with the heated bed is a fantastic printer.
