UM2 needs this additional extruder

Recommended Posts

Got any updates as to when it will be ready?

With water soluble filament in the second extruder and used for support material I think this will revolutionise the printing of more complex models.

Of course a 3rd extruder would be great too but that will need to wait for UM3+ I guess as there is no room for it in the print head I guess (unless a larger print head is used I guess).

Also because they have worked so hard to get ultimaker 2 as good as it is now... that they will want to make sure that the dual extrustion upgrade is also.... at that same high standard !

    • "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.
