UM2 Hotend Upgrade

Posted · UM2 Hotend Upgrade

I had a E3d v(IDK maybe 6) Hotend on my Ultimaker 2 Extended + and it seemed pretty old and worn. I got it preowned. So I don't know exactly how old it was and thought a new nozzle would help out but I ended up breaking the new nozzle when tighten it (First Time change nozzle}. Pretty sure it was cause it was not hot when putting new nozzle on and maybe a little to much torque. Also another mistake I made was ripping the Thermistor out of its metal housing. So my question is what hotend kit/Parts i should buy. I have been looking for a few days order one e3d v6 kit Then thy took my money and then said it was out of stock Currently waiting for refund. Want To know if i should get a e3d V6 Kit or is there a better alternative. Links would be helpful. Thank you for your time and help


Printer: Ultimaker 2 Extended +

Filament: 3.00mm/2.85mm

Other Details: 24v, Bowden,

    The UM2 head is a pretty good print head.  It's too bad they changed it out.  You can get chinese versions on aliexpress.  That's probably what I would do.  Super cheap.  But the quality can be pretty bad.  It's hit or miss but the price is so cheap maybe you don't care.
