There will be an upgrade kit available this month ( first quarter 2016 )

It will contain all the parts required to convert your machine to a 2+.

Once installed you can change the machine to 2+ in cura and install the 2+ firmware.

I've seen the upgrade for sale already somewhere - I think maybe I saw it in canada - at 3dshop.ca?  I hear it's involved and requires drilling holes in your printer.  It's also quite a bit of money.  What country are you in ianmellor?  Please put your country in your profile location setting.

CORRECTION 13 DAYS LATER - It's a pretty simple upgrade to perform because they have you replace the whole head as one piece and there is indeed no drilling. That was an incorrect rumor.

I don't think any drilling is required, there's a metal adapter plate included. It should be pretty plug and play. The job is probably comparable to many of the normal maintenance tasks... you should be a bit handy ...

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
