Buying replacement plastic parts for extruder (UM2)

Posted · Buying replacement plastic parts for extruder (UM2)

Hi there,

Is there anyway to buy some plastic parts that the extruder of the Ultimaker 2 is made of?

Someone from our community decided to clean the nozzle after printing with ABS. Unfortunately he decided to not only put the nozzle in acetone but also the lowest plastic part from the extruder. When he removed it from the acetone bath it was white on the outside and had dozens of cracks in it.

So we are thinking about glueing it together with some epoxy but a new plastic piece would be way better. So is there anyway to get one, preferable in Germany?

Thanks,

Tharin

Hi Tharin,

If you get in touch with your reseller I am sure we'll be able to help you out get your hands on a new part.

Well, at least I hope your community-member learned its lesson ;)
