Many of you may be wondering: what is included in the Upgrade Kit and what are the advantages over the One without the Upgrade Kit? First of all, you need to know that the Upgrade Kit is not mandatory, but you can upgrade your One with the Upgrade Kit to make it work even better!

Contents of the Upgrade Kit:

  • Direct Drive extruder
  • MeanWell power supply
  • Volcano hotend

What advantages do the do the components have in detail?

The feed wheel of the Direct Drive extruder is located much closer to the nozzle, which shortens the feed path. This makes the "reaction time" of the filament very short and the extruder can move faster. This also enables easier printing with TPU.

The Volcano Hotend has the advantage that it is able to melt the filament quicker and also more evenly. This enables the printer to print faster, because the filament can be pushed through the nozzle more easily.

The MeanWell power supply is a more stable power supply than the standard power supply. The power supply does have short-circuit-, overload- and overvoltage-protection. The fan of this power supply is also very silent,

Feel free to ask your questions or give us your opinion to the Upgrade Kit!
