E3D V6 hotend on Ultimaker Original issue

Posted · E3D V6 hotend on Ultimaker Original issue

Hi

I have a frustrating issue with the upgrade of the hot end of my Ultimaker Original. The PLA printed mount doesn't not last long enough to print one in ABS.

I am looking at buying an aluminium mount and I have come across some Ultimaker 2+ mounts. I wanted to know if these would be compatible in terms of the xy axis or if anyone can point me to a suitable mount?

cheers

    The mount dosn't last long enough? Why?

    I've had the same PLA mount for my E3Dv6 for years now... If its melting or deforming something in your hotend assembly is not correct, the hotend is not supposed to be hot on any parts near or touching the mount...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
