    Hi all,
    Newly joined and after a bit of advice.
    I love my Ultimaker Original. I've had it for almost 4 years and it is a solid workhorse of a machine, with one small downside, which is the extruder. I fitted the heated bed mod, looked after the machine and even the Ultimaker GB guys in Chorley commented on how good a machine it is when I took it for a service.
    As you cannot buy the extruder for the UM2+ as a separate item from Ultimaker, I have decided to upgrade the extruder to a Titan. It will be acting as a Bowden tube extruder and I have to design the mount for it as I haven't found one yet. I'm just wondering if anyone else has done the mod, or has any advice?

    All the best,

    Dave

    I see there's v6 hotend carriage for the ultimaker on thingiverse- thatd be the hardest bit I'd imagine. Mounting a titan and stepper on the back somewhere shouldn't be too tricky.

    Yes, have seen that but sticking to the original hotend for now, at least. Mounting the Titan on the back shouldn't be difficult, as you say, but was hoping someone had done it so I wouldn't be reinventing the wheel.

Im a little bit confused about the schematic the umo board have the 4 motor contacts a1 a2 b1 b2 and the stepper motor on the titan have 6 contacts a ? b a- ? b- anyone know howto connect these? And what are the contacts in the middle?
