Ultimaker 2+ and 3D Solex TF2K

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I need to order PTFE coupler to my UM2+ (orginal one still works but I need additional one as a spart part, as shortly I will print more from ABS at 260 celcius).

I've checked 3D Solex offer and ... I don't understand it :(

Main question is if 3D Solex TF2K (with I2K insulator) is compatible with UM2+ ?

I understand that in UM2 you can use it but there is a spring over PTFE coupler. UM2+ hasn't spring so how does it work with I2K?

If not 3D Solex TF2K what would you recommend for UM2+?

What durability I can expect from original PTFE coupler printing ABS at 260 degree?

Thanks in advance for all answers

Thanks a lot for answer. It's odd that 3D Solex is not able write clearly in their store with what models the item is compatible.

BTW. May I ask where did you find this awesome looking air duct ("Mark 2")? Is a project available somewhere?

jpyt - glad I made sense, the mark 2 is the second head Mod for the UM2 I don't know whether the 2+ is also an intended machine to retro fit to.

the link


the air duct is some thing I came up with, for the second head which I have started to install, on going project it will probably be installed by Christmas and then probably sell the machine. Glad you like it.

I Like that, Yeah I had a few issues printing the head, and I was fighting with another printer, so didn't want to have 2 on the go, I ripped the bed off the UM2 so I have no choice now but to do the Wring (this weekend if all goes to plan) if not next week,, LOL but thanks for Asking :D

    • "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.
