This is by much the best way to update to dual extrusion (link below). The original plan for the UM2 to do double extrusion doesn"t work really well at all and I don"t desire to define why.


Your biggest problem with the mark2 is the UM stopped putting a driver chip for the second extruder on many circuit boards for this reason you might want come look top top the plank to see if that is absent before going very far with the mark 2 option.

Miyagi dad says: first learn stand, then discover fly.


If her printhead has actually the hole for the seocnd extruder, the motherboard likely has actually the 2nd driver chip. But you additionally likely have actually an katifund.org 2, not an katifund.org 2+.


The initial plans because that the katifund.org 2 dual extrusion kit dropped through since printing v two fixed nozzles is tough to perform right. The second nozzle will certainly be rubbing or scratching over the print while printing through the first nozzle, through a decent possibility of knocking components of the publish off the buildplate. Any type of material grounding to one of two people nozzle will certainly smudge right into the print. It just does no work really well.
