This experimental kit gives your Ultimaker Original the power of dual extrusion. Not only will this allow for two color printing, it will let you print using dissolvable support structures such as HIPS and PVA. The kit includes a new extruder assembly, nozzle, heater, thermocouple, stepper motor & driver, and everything else you need to take your UItimaker original to the next level.

The upgrade takes about 3 hours, not including calibration. All of the new Ultimaker kits we've been shipping have the mounting holes for the second extruder. In the event that yours doesn't, simply print the dual extrusion aid before starting the upgrade.

Please note - This kit is experimental and is not recommended for those don't enjoy tinkering with their machine. The kit only works on the original Ultimaker.

Recommended settings for PLA: Print at 190°C and 50mm/s to avoid oozing - set retraction speed to 40-50mm/s at 4.5mm (blog post).
