As a paid promo is nice. But what are the advantages apart of a bit higher temps? Isn't like normal people can actually print at that temps since 80% of the high temp filaments release nasty chemicals.

Also I would like to see an actual vs print and high retraction test using pla with that fullmetal stuff.

I was going to mention that...show me a print after all of that! Let's see if it's better, worse or the same as the 2+ upgrade!

The feeder is probably about on par with the 2+ feeder, and re the hotend i would prefer the Olsson block any day over the V6, swapping nozzles is horrible to do when you have to hold the block steady with one tool to not damage the heat break and remove the nozzle with a tool in the other hand while the whole assembly is hot. Also the UM2+ setup with the TFM coupler is much better than a All-metal hotend for printing PLA.

I noticed in today's email flier from Matterhacker they are advertising it as being 'cheaper than the Ultimaker 2+ Extruder upgrade'

https://www.matterhackers.com/store/pri ... pgrade-kit

But they really don't mention the troubles of PLA or demonstrate how "easy" swapping those nozzles will be, versus the Olsson Block
