You can control the Ultimaker 2+ Connect by using the touchscreen at the front of the printer. When you turn on the printer, the display will show the main menu. From here, you can start a print via USB. Additionally, the main menu offers three options, represented by the following icons:
|Materials. This menu shows which material is currently loaded. It also offers the options to change, load, or unload material, or select a different material type.|
|Settings. In this menu, you can update the firmware, connect to the Digital Factory, and change settings for the frame lighting.|
|Maintenance. In the maintenance menu, you can manually set the nozzle temperature and move the build plate, for example for troubleshooting purposes. Additionally, this menu offers the build plate leveling process and a diagnostics option.|
Scroll through the sub-menus by using the up and down arrows on the right side. The number of pages is shown in the middle. Select the left arrow icon in the top-left corner to exit the menu and return to the main menu. Once you have started a process, such as Unload material, instructions will be provided on the display. If necessary, select the X icon in the top-right corner to abort the process.
During printing, the main screen will show information about the print and its progress.
