My UM2 Extended has arrived

Recommended Posts

Posted · My UM2 Extended has arrived

Turned up this afternoon and all is well. Lots of little refinements to the hardware and firmware that I can see. Seems to be a bit quieter and more refined during operation than my other two machines. Also came with a spare PTFE insulator and hot end, which is a new and welcome touch. Doing a full on 6 hour test print just now at .06 so looking forward to seeing the results.

Im a busy man :-D tried two prints now and both failed. Just checked and found a couple of screws that could have been tighter at the pulleys and the rods were bone dry so gave them some grease. Trying another print now.

Beautiful print!

It looks like an ornament?, like that goes on a shield or so..

When are you going to test out the extended build volume? ;)

Nice printers :) Thanks for info. Is that last photo after any cleanup at all? Did you use retraction? What settings?

I used in expert setting printing at .006, 50 speed, top/bottom hight .8/.09, infill 25% with retraction at standard. Thats before any clean up and was a prototype print. Final version was printed on my Form 1 but the Name plate (see image) was printed on the UM2 Ex in Clolorfab on the same settings and just rubbed down with 240 grit to 1200 grit paper wet. Fianl pieces were moulded and cold cast resin in Aluminium, brass and bronze. Now, to try out that build volume....
