Anyone here on the forum that already has ordered this part from Aliexpress? It's a dual heaterblock. See description Aliexpress: 3D printer Heaterblock Ultimaker 2 + UM2 Dual Heads Extruder Olsson block fans kit Nozzles 0.25--0.8mm HotEnd for 1.75/3mm.

Link is here: https://bit.ly/2Y0rHvT

Is it working good ? It is still for 2 days 40% cheaper in price.

    Not recommended to do dual printing this way.

    The reason is:
    If it's manufactured perfectly the nozzles are on the same height. But that's not good because your 2nd nozzle will ooze on your print while the 1st is printing and vice versa.

    For this reason all dual head concept work with two heads or with a lifting mechanism for the unused nozzle.

    And likely the two nozzles of this head have a slightly different height  and that's even worse. Because then the lower nozzle would actually end vertically "in" your print and scratch it during printing.

      • 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
