Ultimaker Upgrades

Recommended Posts

What is the benefit to adding each of the upgrades to your Ultimaker Original:

A. Knurled drive bolt kit (v3)

B. Extruder drive upgrade

C. Ulticontroller kit

D. Hot end upgrade (v2)

Also, are there 3rd party alternatives or printables that are considered better?

I believe all those upgrades are already included with the current UMO's from like a year ago on.

Mine came with a V2 hotend, knurled bolt and extruder upgrade.

Ulticontroller allows you to use SD cards to print untethered from your PC and controls the UM speed and tune settings from an knob and LCD. Otherwise you'll have to run it through USB.

    • "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.
