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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
