So, the new origonal has been out for some time, but what is the difference. images show the extruder motor looks differen, and a new hot end fan case, and heated build plate, but any differences, anyone got one, im truly fascinated by the one image i found on google of the new extruder "gear"

edit:

    Well, it uses the same bed and electronics as the UM2, so many benefits there. It is one board and requires no fan. The other benefit is the use of the PT100 sensor. So now the head doesn't need all the thermocouple boards on the head etc... Much cleaner appearance. The covered gear in the back on the feeder and the metal housing are safety features as a result of the CE certification. But also since the bed is from the UM2 it has a Z Stepper with an integrated acme thread rod which moves a ton faster. It really changes the whole feeling of the printer. You will be very happy with the machine.

    I think the sound level is lower due to the better electronics too :)

    Also, it's not only a heated bed, but also the Zstage of the UM2, which is much more reliable! It's the same as in the Heated Bed Kit btw.

    excelent, so really its closer to a wooden ultimaker 2 than an origonal. nice to see them even improving on what was already a fantastic kit built model.
