Extrusion upgrade kit (what's in the box)


The new Extrusion upgrade kit lets you turn your Ultimaker 2 into anUltimaker 2+ in under an hour. Once done, you’ll have the very latest 3D printing technology at your fingertips. There’s a geared feeder for increased reliability. Swappable nozzles for greater control. And an optimized airflow for smoother prints. It all adds up to make your Ultimaker even smoother, faster and more accurate.

What’s in the Kit

Everything you need to assemble the upgrade is in the box. There are no special tools needed and you’ll be finished in an hour.

  1. Fully assembled print head
    The print head comes fully assembled with all parts and wires in place. The new fancaps ensure the airflow is aimed perfectly below the nozzle and equally from both sides and the new Sunon fans are more silent than ever. The heater cartridge is now 35W which improves heat up times and print speeds. The PTFE isolator is made from TFM, which has a longer life span. We’ve removed the spring and implemented a spacer, this puts less pressure on the PTFE isolator which also expands its life span. We’re using a new sensitive PT-100 temperature sensor, it provides accurate readings so you can tweak the settings with precision.
  2. Swappable nozzles
    With the swappable nozzle, you can quickly swap in different nozzles. The standard nozzle size is 0.4 mm, but you also have the option to use a 0.25 mm nozzle for detailed prints or a 0.6 mm/0.8 mm for faster prints.
  3. Geared feeder motor
    A geared feeder motor is included that connects to the geared feeder.
  4. Geared feeder
    The innovative feeder allows you to easily swap filament and choose the correct pressure for your filament. For example with a softer filament you’ll need to choose a lower pressure. Such control increases the success rate of your prints. It also features a lever which, when raised, lets you manually insert or remove filament.
  5. Print head shafts
    New print head shafts are included, just in case you’ll bend your current print head shafts while removing the print head.
  6.  Ultimaker calibration card
    A calibration card is included to level the build plate to the correct height.
  7. Filament reel holder
    To save desktop space, a shorter filament reel holder is included.
  8. Axis tools
    Axis tools are included to correctly remove and insert the print head shafts. The axis alignment tools are used to properly align the print head shafts for as little friction as possible.
  9. Build plate clamps
    New build plate clamps are included that are much easier to open and close by hand. This allows you to easily remove the glass plate for cleaning or access to a print.
  10.  ‘+’ stickers
