Posted · Hotend upgrade V1 to V2

I'm running a 2 Ultimaker original

One has a V1 hot end the other V2

I want to upgrade the V1 hot end as I can definitely see the difference in performance, and I keep getting the odd blockage in the V1.

I don't understand why I cant just change the block tube and nozzle? I find it frustrating that Ultimaker sell a very expensive kit with wood and everything else.

PLEASE could someone explain why and what I need t0 change to get it to perform as the & be a V2 hot end?

It looks like the wood is I have on the block is updated with the curve designs.

Can I just fit https://www.ultimaker.com/products/nozzle & https://www.ultimaker.com/products/isolator-tube

In theory this should improve my retraction, ooze?

Thanks

David (still learning)

    The V2 also has a teflon part which is critical to prevent the blocks you are having. The wooden bits need to be changed for this.

    That's not a v2 hotend is it, the peek is sitting directly on the heater block it looks like, without the gap between?

      • 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.
