Description

ACNode is in operation on the Ultimaker-1, the ultimaker-2 acnode is not yet commissioned. In order for your existing training to be approved on ACNode, you must run through a machine type induction to demonstrate how to use the sdcard with the Ultimaker.

If you have been trained previously and need approved on ACNode, contact the maintainers to be added to the acnode.

Specification & documentation

Ultimaker recommend the use of Cura to slice and manipulate your model for printing. There is no pc associated with the Ultimakers, so you will have to download and install Cura and become familiar with it.

The Ultimakers both print from sdcard, so you will need to have with you a sdcard.

Printing

  • Print speed: 30 mm/s - 300 mm/s
  • Travel speed: 30 mm/s - 300 mm/s
  • Precision: 12.5 / 12.5 / 5 micron
  • Nozzle temperature: 180 - 260 °C
  • Heated bed temperature: 50 - 100 °C

Consumables

  • Use of filament will be covered in the training.

Filament options (3.0mm)

  • ABS (prints at 190-230 DegC, requires heated bed at 100-110 DegC)
  • PLA (biodegradable)

Which Sdcard is compatible?
