    I was wondering that actually about stainless steel - good point! Let me know if you find a Chromium Plated Brass or Hardened Copper Alloy Nozzle!

    Also, with the new colorFabb XT-CF20 Carbon Fiber filament, they recommend the following: Any suggestion on where to get a quality Stainless Steel or Hardened Copper Alloy Nozzle for an UMO? Thanks -Jerry

    I believe it is one upgrade kit since the heated bed and z-stage would be difficult (if not impossible) to separate as they basically reuse much of the solution on the UM2. The fan housing is really just a hood that replaces the existing snap-together-ready-to-melt-as-soon-as-you-print-anything-hotter-than-PLA solution. In theory, they could sell that one part all by itself. We did see some slides with pink unicorns... but nothing complete

    The z-stage upgrade looks to be the exact same z-stage as on the UM2, complete with glass print surface, metal base, new threaded rod, and three point leveling system. I believe a more formal announcement will come later today or tomorrow for sure. This information is coming from the group of us who were present at the informal announcement at the Shapeways factory last night

    Per Daid in the other thread mentioned above:
  10. I thought I remembered hearing last night that the UMO upgrade (with the heated bed, new z-stage, and hot end fan enclosure) includes a new PSU, and that some basic wire stripping / soldering may be required to piggyback/power the new mini heater electronics board via the UM electronics. This would only potentially work on an upgraded UMO since it has the two separate electronics boards, but couldn't you, in theory, use the new PSU and dedicate it to the heater board and leave the original PSU connected to the UMO electronics? You would have to plug in two PSUs but then wouldn't have a wattage issue.

Note: I haven't seen the actual kit - last night's demo was using the UMO+ with the UM2 electronics, so all of this is speculation on my part.

    Interesting - I will ask more questions with the R&D folks at the Maker Faire tomorrow. There has to be a solution...

    I asked that same question last night, and the answer is yes!
