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?
