If you print this test, please comment below with what material and gcode you used and what the best temperature was.
3 + 3 different GCODE files for Ultimaker 2 made with the default CURA settings and temperature range from 220C tot 190C in steps of 5C.
Overhang (45 degrees)
Hole (for small bridge test)
Fast Print (FP): 0H45, 0.15mm layers
Normal Print (NP): 2H01, 0.10mm layers
High Quality (HQ): 3H21, 0.06mm layers
I left the buildplate on 60C because the base was warping with the buildplate heating off. I also included files where the buildplate temperature is set to 0. This is obviously more accurate for the test, but well, if the base of the print comes loose you sort of have nothing. You can try for yourself.
If you want to make the gcode yourself or for a different printer, you'll have to insert the temperature commands yourself at the appropriate layer.
The base is 2mm high, the rest is 10mm per piece.
Set bed temp to 0:
Set nozzle temperature:
(where 200 is the temperature).
USE THESE GCODE FILES AT YOUR OWN RISK AND ONLY ON ULTIMAKER 2
Load the gcode in your UM 2 to start the test. Look at the results and decide what temperature works best for your material.
Different layer heights result in different extrusion rates, so optimal temperatures might be different for the differtent cura print presets.
If you want to print using Cura Fast Print, you need to do the fast print test.
