E3D All Metal Hotend for Ultimaker

Posted · E3D All Metal Hotend for Ultimaker

Ah, forgot to mention, yes I installed it this weekend, used old stuff I had from a long time ago, when I configured my own desktop pc. I've had no blockage yet but only printed at 270 without the top closed (just the front). As I said I'll try to figure out the sweet spot of the temperature in the enclosure when I get time.

Hey, Duke, so was this a nice mount in the end? Good bearings etc?

So from reading the above posts is the standard umo setup better for pla than the E3d v6 I thought the E3D was meant to be the best out there ?

For a 3mm bowden setup I would advice against using it for PLA.

IMHO the E3Dv6 is only ok if you want to use it for ABS only.

If you need high temperature ABS you could consider using a swapable mount, and change between original and E3D setup.

something like this?

I am surprised about this, I dont want to build the UMO for ABS I have a Davinci that prints ABS perfect, I wanted it for PLA, wood, nylon etc.

Need to get some more bits ordered !

I have a 1000+hrs on y Davinci and still use xyz ware, Good calibration is key and I use the zerocart bluetooth tool to reset cartridge and set temps, filament makes a big difference too.

My prints are really good I do everything at .2 I am printing all the parts for my UMO build in ABS everything fits perfect so far.

Thing I love about the davinci is I just load stl file, set layer and the fill and that is it, never look at anything else, prints always stick to bed and it must be easy 6months since I looked at calibrating the bed.

I like the simplicity and the perfect prints each time.

Well. Davinci quality it's meh. Sorry it just is.

And about wood, sorry but I'll burst that bubble before you get disappointed. There are no 3d printer than can print wood for any 3d file. You can print, but high retractions make the heat crawl and clog (any 3d printer). Nylon, you need hightemps. Umo doesn't like 255+ it can work, but it's expensive. So. If you want to print long and high temps, get a umo+ and mod it for um2 hotend. Or just get a um2+.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
