Support duration Ultimaker 2+

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, 

I own an Ultimaker 2 Since 2015. Now my hotend is really worn. The plastic parts are broken, the temperature sensor is temporary fixed and Im using a printed Fan shroud for the Olsson block which breaks after each second replacement of the teflon coupler.  So I decided to buy the Extrusion upgrade kit to get rid of these problems. The UM2 is a good working reliable printer and I see no reason to replace this printer. 

 

I want to keep using this printer as long as possible because I'm a student and can't afford a new one in the next three years. 

 

So the UM2+ is available since late  2015 and I'm asking myself how long official replacement parts will be available? Do you know something about this?

    • "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.
