Ultimaker 2 Upgrade Kit vs E3D v6 Hotend & Titan Extruder

Recommended Posts

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 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

    • "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.
