No dual print. Maybe the ultimaker 3? But certainly not the UM2.

Regarding bed temp - I had that on 2 different printers - 3 times for me now over the years. It was always easily fixed. Usually you just tighten down the screw for the temp sensor - on the back left corner of the heated bed - best to take it all apart first (remove glass - completely unscrew the 3 bed screws, unscrew the 2 cable hold down screws). Once I had to reflow the solder. But it was always very easy to fix.

i did reflow solder and tighten screws several times but no lasting fix. i believe its the temp sensor on the temp bed but i cant find a replacement parts.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
