was looking to switch out the existing extruder set up and installing one of these. E3D Hemera 1.75mm 12V Direct Kits. I was wondering if I need to order the 12 v or 24 v. version? I realize I would have to do some work designing a mount for it but i am willing to give it a try, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Do you have a voltmeter? I'm not sure what voltage the power supply puts out, so that wold be the determining factor. The power supply on my 1.5 only appears to put out 12v (+ & -), but I don't know if you could get away with going from 12+ to 12- to get 24 v, I'm not that experienced with power supplies. Also, verify the current requirements of the new gear is less than what it is rated for.
