Hi,

I'm just wanting peoples opinions on which is the better upgrade?

So what would you choose?

The Ultimaker 2 upgrade kit or the E3D v6 Hotend and Titan Extruder?

    OH SORRY! This got lost among over 10,000 spams. The forum gets a lot lately.

    I'm very cheap so I would print the iroberti feeder and add the medusa upgrade. If you already have the olsson block then I wouldn't upgrade that end. If not then I would definitely get the olsson block or the block v3. Stay away from all metal hot ends. They don't do well with PLA.

    I would get the official extrusion upgrade kit any day over the E3D V6 kit, unless you are specialized on printing exclusively with high temperature materials.

    And changing a nozzle on the v6 is much less convient compared to the olsson block. Unless you have a very specific need as in high temperatures I would stay away from the all metal hotends.

    I wouldn't bother with the e3d upgrade. Certainly not worth the money

    We've got 1 one of these on 1 of our ultimakers. Whilst the hotend is fine, everything else isn't. Quite a poor design actually. The push connectors are very hard to remove. Very hard to remove wires through a tiny gap. The thermistor wire is too small. The fan for cooling the filament is a bit of a pain.

    Changing material is a bit of a pain with the speed.

    All in all.... poor
