(AMSTERDAM) — Ultimaker, an open source 3D printer manufacturer, is launching a new Extrusion upgrade kit for their previous models Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended 3D printers at 2016 South by Southwest Interactive. Immediately available for purchase, the kit, which was created with the help of Ultimaker’s community, will provide all of the upgraded features found in Ultimaker’s newest printer, the Ultimaker 2+. The Extrusion upgrade kit enables users to upgrade the previous model to the latest standard for improved print results.
THE EXTRUSION UPGRADE INCLUDES

The innovative feeder allows users to easily change filament and choose the correct filament pressure.
- Swappable Nozzle for Greater Control
Easily switch between 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mm nozzles for greater detail or faster print speed.
- Optimized Airflow for Smoother Prints
The new fan caps ensure the airflow is aimed perfectly below the nozzle and equally from each side.
“Not only do we introduce new features for our printers based on what we think is valuable, we listen to the needs and wishes of our users,” says Siert Wijnia, CTO and founder of Ultimaker. “By introducing the Extrusion upgrade kit we allow our users who already own an Ultimaker 2 to benefit from our latest technology.”
Ultimaker listens carefully to their users and ensures that their products are adapted to users’ needs. By working closely with their community they have succeeded in developing an upgrade kit which enables their users to stay up to date and adds to a more enjoyable printing experience.
From the very beginning Ultimaker’s vision has been to make 3D Printing accessible to all. It is why all their desktop printers are extremely quiet, fast, accurate, reliable and effortless to use. Such a commitment has seen them embraced both by professionals and novices alike. This has also helped them to become one of the most successful and reliable open source 3D printing companies in the world. Most recently, the company was awarded best in shootout 2015 in the established Make Magazine, the editors’ choice by Digital Trends and best Consumer Product at the 3D Printshow Global Awards 2014.
