Frequently Asked Questions

What can I print with my E3D upgrade?Any 3D printing filaments you can find! Up to and above hotend temperatures of 300°C
What does E3D mean for my Ultimaker?E3D's modular extrusion system has every sized nozzle you could ever want, in a variety of materials, so you can print super-abrasive filaments such as carbon fibre or Glow PLA, by simply swapping your nozzle for a hardened steel version. You'll also start off with an awesome selection of 6 brass nozzles to get you started on printing with big, fat layers, or very fine detail.
What's the little YELLOW printed part?It's for pushing down the connector that holds your filament guide tubing at each end (Bowden tube release tool).
All the wires look the same.They should all arrive labelled at the lower end of the cables. If any labels have come loose, just watch the video guide or read the wiki to see where everything goes.
My hotend doesn't hit the endstop on the X and/or Y axis? Check the wiki, you have probably mounted the carriage backwards or on the wrong side. No modifications are required to your endstops whe assemble correctly.
I am experiencing some under-extrusion.Check that you have uploaded the correct version of the firmware to your Ultimaker and that you have run the SD configuration file. Check that your filament flow is at or near 100%. Also, if using the 1.75 beta upgrade (*coming soon), make sure that you have changed your slicer settings to 1.75 filamenty instead of 2.85mm (a.k.a. 3mm). If using Cura 2.X, you will have to either revert to using a previous version of Cura (15.X) or another slicer (we recommend Simplify3D, the results are gorgeous!). Another solution is to change the diameter of the filament by creating a custom profile as you load your first sool of 1.75mm, this does require you to select the temperatures manually, but gives you much more control over your print settings. Also, check your idler tension, we recommend making it tighter than looser as the Titan can easily cope with the extra grip, and is less likelly to skip on retraction.
I am experiencing some over-extrusion.Check that your filament flow is at or near 100%. Check your idler tension. We recommend making it tighter than looser as the Titan can easily cope with the extra grip, and is less likelly to skip on retraction. Also, as above, check that the right filament diameter has been used, especially when using Simplify3D, where the default filament diameter is 1.75mm.
My first layer is not sticking to the bed.Run the calibration procedure on the Ultimaker, and coat your bed with a light layer of UHU stick if you are using anything other than PLA. Also, run the bed hot to the material specifications.
How do I change my filament diameter in Cura 2.X?You cannot, Ultimaker have "greyed it out". You can still see it in the settings, but unfortunately, in this latest version, you cannot change it. We recommend using and old version of Cura (15.X), which allows you to change the filament diameter in the advanced settings, or to use another slicer. We particularly recommend Simplify3D, which already has an Ultimaker 2/2+/2Extended/2+Extended profile, which you can tweak to get that perfect print! If you still want to use Cura 2.X, you still can, make sure, as mentioned above, to select the right filament diameter as you insert your filament, by creating a custom profile.
Does the filament change function still function on my upgraded Ultimaker 2/2+/2Extended/2+Extended ?Yes it does.
Does my upgraded Ultimaker work with flexibles?Yes it does, we have found that it works particularly well with the 3mm upgrade, as the stiffness of the material is greater in the thicker filament than with the 1.75 filament. We still recommend running the printing speed at 50% than you would usually.

E3D Extrusion Upgrade Kit for Ultimakers

This Ultimaker upgrade boosts your Ultimaker 2 to access the full E3D ecosystem for high-performance professional tinkering. We recommend this E3D extrusion upgrade for intermediate to advanced users who are comfortable modding the hardware and firmware of their 3D printing machinery.

Upgrade your Ultimaker 2, 2+, 2 Extended, 2 Extended+ with the acclaimed E3D V6 HotEnd and Titan Extruder. Open the door to the full E3D ecosystem for 3D printing, with its impressive range of modular nozzles and parts to suit your every need.

Combined with our powerful geared Titan extruder, experience grip and pushing strength like never before.

We have also included a nozzle fun pack, with 6 nozzle sizes ranging from 0.25mm to 0.8mm, and with a standard 0.4mm already mounted and hot-tightened onto the hotend.

This hotend is also compatible with our silicone sock, and comes with one already mounted on the hotend; no more plastic gunking up your nozzle or block!

Detailed instructions are available on our wiki, and Tom Sanlanderer also has a complete upgrade video tutorial.
