Hotend upgrade V1 to V2

Recommended Posts

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)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
