$ 99.99

Please allow 1-2 weeks for this kit to ship.

This hot end kit enables 3d printing a wider variety of plastics, and also eliminates the PTFE bushing, the PTFE bushing being a consumable. This kit reuses as many stock parts as possible and when completed, the upgraded hot end looks like it belongs in the Ultimaker.

The installer may need to be able to upgrade the firmware using the Arduino development environment and the latest copy of Tinkergnome's version of Ultimaker 2 series firmware. Instructions are provided.

This upgrade enables polycarbonates, nylons, Ultem™ (PEI), PEEK and most other high temperature thermoplastics, and yet still prints more conventional plastics such as PLA, PETG, HIPS, ASA and ABS, with ease. This system was tested up to 400˚C extrusion temperatures and 85˚C ambient temperatures.

This listing is for heat sink, hot end heater block, heat break. The kit uses a stock heater, sensor & fans already in the machine. One brass nozzles is included. Changing filament size requires new a bowden tube, fittings, and extruder. A firmware upgrade is needed to enable high temperature use and if changing extruders. A lid and door kit is recommended for higher temperature plastics.

This system uses E3D Kraken / Chimera style heat breaks, E3D style or compatible heat blocks and E3D style or compatible nozzles, such as the nozzle included with an Olsson block.

Made in the USA by DM-Accessories.
