Carbon fiber materials on UM2+C ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Carbon fiber materials on UM2+C ?

Hello there. 

Does the UM2+C have hardened extruder gears like the UMS3 and S5 for abrasive materials?

I know I can upgrade the nozzle of the UM2+C with a Rubin nozzle but can the rest of the printer handle abrasive materials as well?


Thanks in advance.

    no, unfortunately the feeder gear is not hardened.

    One possibility is to buy the feeder from S3/S5 you replace the feeder gear from it. But you have to buy the whole feeder, because as far as I know the feeder gear is not available as a spare part.
