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.

Oh and if you want the best feeder then get the bondtech feeder.

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
