UM2 (not plus) replace extrusion tip?

Recommended Posts

I have a UM2 which is not a "Plus" or "Extended". All the replacement extruder tips I can find indicate they are for the UM2+ which I do not have.

I see there is a "UM2 to UM2+" upgrade kit but it includes other things I don't want (eg. extruder drive motor assy because I already got the Bondtech QR extruder assy) and anyway the UM2+ upgrade kit is apparently no longer stocked by "MatterHackers" (I am in the US).

Do I have any reasonably-priced options to just replace the 0.4mm extruder tip itself?

You can just buy a Olson block at your ultimaker2 reseller. If you never replaced the original nozzle you may have trouble getting out the heater or sensor. Worst case you damage a wire and have to replace the pt100 heat sensor. It's pretty cheap to get a new one though. If you don't want to be out of business long get a spare before you replace the block.

    • "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.
