The Ultimate upgrades and mod for Ultimake 2 in 2023


Recommended Posts

Posted · The Ultimate upgrades and mod for Ultimake 2 in 2023



It is year 2023 and I still have my UM2 with Olsson block standing in my printer root. I am not using it anymore even though I have "tons" of filament left for it. 


The reason is that I have built myself Voron 2.4 and since then have used that beast.


But I still love my UM2 would love to start using it again. But there is something I hate about it. It's extruder system with boden tube. Tried some of the version of extruders that I could print myself but none of them were satisfactory. Really hate it. 


I would love to get rid of it and upgrade to direct drive system. Looked at Zero Gravity extruder that one could print but that is not something I want to have. I don't mind spending some money on it and buy ready made one.


So I have 2 questions.

- What direct drive extruders are out there that fit and has been proven to work on UM2?
- What other mods/upgrades are ones to recommends that would lift my UM2 one step up?
