Ultimaker 3 extend owner looking to buy Pro2

Postby MHoude » Mon Apr 30, 2018 3:55 pm

Hello everyone,

New to this forum but looking for answer. We are very satisfy with the ultimaker 3 extend but we want a bigger printing area and the raise3d pro2 look very good. But i try to find out how the printer is doing the leveling.

What is the expectation versus ultimaker.

We don't want to lose time to adjust, we want to have a plug and print.

Waiting for your comments

Thanx

The bed leveling system is per-calibrated in factory for every Pro2 series printer. We will attached a leveling test model for each printer inside for user to check.

And if compared with N series, the leveling system has been completely upgraded.
The stiffness of material used for heated bed on N series requires 13 different calibration points to ensure its flatness.
Now, in the Pro2 series, the stiffness of the material used for the new heated bed is higher, so the calibration is possible with only 4 points. The other 9 points are only there for fixing.

And once you get the levelness, it can hold for at least several weeks or even months.

Thanx for the answer. Do you have a video how to level for the new Pro2 and how to check the bed level.

Video is not available by now. But I can share some pictures for you to get better understand.

There are three screws working as a set. Two set screws for pushing the heated bed up, one long screw with nut for pulling the heated bed down.
