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 ...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
