Is there a limit to the UM2 firmware, with respect to the heated printing plate?

Is there a limit to the UM 2 firmware, with respect to the printing plate?

I had never been needed, and I will never need probably because I only use PLA. But a test of the printing plate showed me that more than 98 degrees can not be achieved. My UM2 is older than a year, but that should have no influence on the heating performance, or is it?

There is a maximum temperature set in Marlin:


#define BED_MAXTEMP 200

However, the bed will not reach more than about 100-110 C easily, unless you build a housing for the printer.

I have a fairly old UM2 and it can reach about 100 C if the room where I keep it is 20 C.

    • "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.
