dual extrusion for UM2E+

Recommended Posts

Hallo guys,

I just bought my UM2E+ but now I saw that we can get a dual extrusion kit for it. My question is if I need to buy all components on this kit or if can I buy only de necessary parts for my printer.

I tried twice to contact the Ulticreatr people but it was unsuccessfully. Can someone help me please?

Thank you very much in advance.

Sidney

The Creatr people launched that kit and they are nowhere to be seen on the forum for months. We saw posts of users that couldn't get it working and they clearly don't give good support. They made that kit (is far from anything official) an afaik once you install that kit you can't use the bed heat, not even for a single hotend print.

I would wait for this:

I seen it in real life and is amazing.

    • "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.
