Files for the E3D Ultimaker Upgrade Kit - to adapt your Ultimaker to the acclaimed V6 hotend and Titan extruder.

Full wiki guidelines here: http://e3d.online/E3DmyUltimaker
Or get the full kit here http://e3d-online.com/Ultimaker-Extrusion-Upgrade-Kit

This E3D conversion is optimised for:
Ultimaker 2,
Ultimaker 2+,
Ultimaker 2 Extended
Ultimaker 2 Extended+

The E3D printhead carriage should be suitable for the Ultimaker 2 Go and the Ultimaker Original, but those variants have not been tested and the kit is optimised for the above list.

This upgrade kit is based on an original collaboration with Gyrobot aka Steve Wood. Check out http://gensole.com to see his latest project...

I print this but it is fitting a little bit losse. On the e3d.
It seems like the bottom part needs to be a few mm bigger. And one have this problem?
My part overall is correct in xyz

You need to scale up Z to 103% or more.

Thank you. I ended up doing that after i post.
It fix tighter, but overall i went with a different design.

Hi, would be great if there would be a new photo so that you can see the new fan duct design. Nice thingi, keep up the good work !

I have just made and fitted one made from pet-g.
It's a great bit of kit

What material should this be printed in?

ABS, PETG, NYLON. I've printed mine in ABS and its perfectly fine. PLA will warp over time with the heat.

The parts that came with my E3D upgrade kit were printed quite poorly. I had to drill out all of the holes for it to work. I will reprint these to a better quality and replace.

Yes, the parts that come with the kit are pretty bad. Also screwing the nuts on and off is a real pain in terms of maintenance. I would actually recommend this mount if you plan on printing it yourself: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:992952

E3D Custom UM2 Mount

That's a much nicer piece. I ended up just sending the damn thing back to E3D and getting the Ultimaker upgrade kit. A world of difference.

Whats the distance between the 2 6mm axises? from hart to hart.

Hi, what are the bearing sizes of the Ultimakers? I read somewhere that they are lm18luu bearings. Is this true?

just made an fan duct for 40mm fan

ultimaker 2 fan duct 40mm e3d

On a non related subject, what is the green part printed at the third picture? (the diamond).
I really wish to print that beautifull thin.

Thank you!!

Print details and a link to the design are available on the ultimaker forum, here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/prints/7846-e3d-emeralds

The design itself is on thingiverse! Thing:19137

This looks like a pretty slick kit.

Has anyone installed this upgrade yet?

Is there PTFE tube in the hot end? Or is it all metal?

How well does it work with different materials? PLA? ColorFab XT? Semi Flex?

Does the silicone sock work as well as advertised?

Just used the files from this to improve my ultimaker aluminium, already had all the e3d gear to put into it for 1.75mm, prints nice with no support, everything fits snug!

First few prints are so far spot on! Using pla/abs will keep testing

As for the sock, yes these do work well imo, it does combat the dreaded err03! And keeps the heat in nozzle more consistent.

Hope this helps would post up in makes but can't figure out how to do it on phone lol

The V6 is all-metal and is capable of a print temperature of up to 380°C
It's the best hot-end available for printing with the widest range of materials - including all those you've mentioned, spoolWorks Edge filament, and many many more.
As for the sock - we use it on every printer we run - it's up to personal taste but it does increase the consistency of the heater block temperature, and the silicone is non-stick so almost entirely removes the nasty cloggy problem of filament build-up.

Saw a YouTube install on Tom's 3DP channel this weekend.

E3D v6 is technically an all-metal hot end, though the 1.75mm variant has PTFE tube in it to guide PLA and keep in from sticking. Though heat should never creep up to the tubing, so the hotend is at least good to 300 degrees I believe. Should handle all of those materials except maybe the semi-flex, which I didn't think did well with bowden tubes.

Waiting for xmas to test the new sock, though I have my fingers crossed it will help with PETG stringing.

Just to clarify.
Only the Lite has PTFE liner... the FULL is all metal. Also for 1,75mm variant :)
I'm using the FULL, and been doing so for a few years. I love the added friction, as it means retract can be kept at around 1mm, even with bowden!

Hi Kurza
We haven't put it through extensive testing, but we have used both Ninjaflex and Semiflex on the 3mm E3D upgrade kit, both successfully. :)

FYI. I am successfully printing Semi-Flex (not Ninja Flex) on our stock UM2.

Please let me know how the sock works for you.

I will probably have to wait for my hot end to crap out. It is hard to tell the boss we need new parts when nothing is broken.
