Our R&D department has been working hard on a dual extrusion upgrade for the Ultimaker. And you are now able to place pre-orders for the dual extrusion KIT.
The pre-order is non-binding, but it gives you the opportunity to buy it as one of the first in the world! Please send a mail to dualextrusion@u
The prices will be announced next week! (Editor note: the prizes will released on monday 19th of August).
The dual extrusion KIT is still experimental, which means tinkering for the best result is needed. At the moment our slicer Cura does not support features recommended for PVA, like ‘wipe’. However, you can experiment with PVA in the dual extrusion KIT by using another slicer program that does support it. Printing in dual color is supported.
The dual extrusion KIT takes about 3 to 5 hours to install and is fully backwards compatible with all existing Ultimakers. We are very curious to see what you are going to print! Enjoy the pics:
