Desperately need UM2/UM2+ hot end (minimum aluminium parts)

Posted · Desperately need UM2/UM2+ hot end (minimum aluminium parts)

Hi guys,


It's been a few years since last post. First, apologies if this is in the wrong section, admin please feel free to move. 


I've got a UMO, and, having experimented with E3D hotends and complete custom units (on my mag tool change printer), i've decided it's time to upgrade to a UM2+ hot end. All of this is due to a large work project, with an expectation that I will be printing all the parts, and within the next week or so. I feel this hot end (with olsson block) will give the best results.


The problem is, no one in the UK or Europe seems to sell the UM2/UM2+ aluminium parts (the heat sink and two plates). This is a long shot, but is there anyone here who can sell me the parts, or hot end complete, I don't mind?


@SandervG, do you know if ultimaker have these parts kicking around anymore? If you can help in any way, please do send me a PM.


Thanks for any help guys.

    When you contact an official reseller (like iGo3D) or someone in UK (check the UM website) they should be able to order any spare part for you. Often they don't have all the parts listed in their webshop but give them a call and you should get it.

    Yes, if you are in the UK I would recommend to get in touch with 3DGBIRE. If they don't have them laying around, they should be able to order them from us. Good luck.

      • 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
