  1. I've converted my UMO to 1.75 filament, discussed here: I'm stuck dialing in the e-steps. Would you be able to send/share your firmware settings to see if it would work on my setup. Thank you very much.
  2. That one should work...search for Amadee's firmware to configure a 12864 LCD Smart Display Controller.
  3. You should get this one instead. https://folgertech.com/collections/lcd-displays/products/lcd-display-controller-12864-graphical-reprap-ramps-3d-printer-mendel-1 I have it on both of my UMOs, and they work perfectly.
  4. UPDATED LISTING 11.24.2017 Converting my UMO to a 1.75 filament Hyper Cube printer, as well as changing the board and controller. Selling the following. 1. UMO BOARD - Genuine PCB board, modded with a 4.7k ohm resistor, to allow for the E3D cartridged style thermistor to work. I have been using it with the E3D V6 without problems. - $75 shipped 2. UMO ULTICONTROLLER - works great, slight light bleed on the lcd and card slot works but sd card should be pushed a few times to stay in - $25 shipped

    SEEKING HELP TO CONFIGURE UMO FIRMWARE

    Thank you for your reply. I will connect it to pronterface and take a snap shot and post it here. I agree with what you said about making firmware changes for the EStesp, thermistor type and graphic display. Hope to gets some tips once when I post the firmware settings.

  7. Thanks for this great guide on the SSS driver. Might upgrade to it down the line, but for now just want to install the DRV8825 drivers. Really need a guide on how to install on the UMO board.

    Gnevko's UMO+ Small Upgrade

    Following this. What are the hardware that you kept from the stock UMO+ for this build? What would it entail and the disadvantages of doing this on the UMO but with a bigger build volume, say 300x300x400?
  9. Hello. I'm in the process of replacing the original stepper drivers on my UMO. I got the DRV8825 from amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N3YHJ9J/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and would like to get some pointers and steps on how to install them. Here's some of my questions. 1. What is the orientation on the board of the stepper driver for the X, Y, Z and Extruder motors? 2. Are there any hardware adjustments (ie, pins, wire plugs orientations) that I need to follow? 3. What are the changes needed on the firmware? 4. What are the stepper voltage values that I need to set each drivers. In what direction does the "pots" rotate to increase/decrease the values? A clear cut step by step guide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

  11. Back on sale. Just replaced a faulty extruder stepper driver.
  12. Sorry for not replying sooner. Attached is the download link for the stls and printing instructions, please note that they need to be scaled down. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6koOf-H2DPDZ2NBZFpkVzBzUFE Hope it helps!
  13. Which one should I use as a drop in replacement for my UMO the stepper driver? https://www.amazon.com/ARQQ-DRV8825-StepStick-Stepper-Printer/dp/B01N3YHJ9J/ref=sr_1_8?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1505109090&sr=1-8&keywords=DRV8825 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FFFYVV8/ref=sxr_pa_click_within_right_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3163805422&pf_rd_r=WKYHC6P7WJT76ACJKTFP&pd_rd_wg=VDib1&pf_rd_s=desktop-rhs-carousels&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_w=jcfhS&pf_rd_i=a4988+stepper+motor+driver&pd_rd_r=THFHR1H22WME743W2031&psc=1
  14. Hello UM Gurus, I think my extruder stepper driver and motor died. The extruder motor is not moving whenever I'm doing a print. Here's a bit of explanation of what happened. 1. Last time the extruder motor worked, the UMO would print but about 5-7 minutes into the print, the filament would stop extruding. The motor will not spin/move anymore. 2. Flipped the UMO over and looked at the extruder stepper driver on the board and found that it's missing the heatsink. The other stepper driver has the heatsinks on them. 3. Took the extruder stepper driver from my 2nd UMO, and installed it on the the UMO that has a problem, but carelessly (stupidly) installed in the wrong way. It should have been installed 180 degree in relation to the other stepper driver on the board. Can someone please confirm this. 4. Tested if the stepper motor is still good by plugging it on the z-axis and moving it forward in 1mm increments using the Ulticontroller. It still moves forward but not backward/reverse. Can anyone please confirm if both died, and where can I get a replacement. Would the ones on ebay or amazon work. Thank you for your help. https://www.amazon.com/BIQU-Compatible-StepStick-Stepper-Controller/dp/B01FFFYVV8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1504141714&sr=8-3&keywords=a4988 http://www.ebay.com/itm/5PCS-3D-Printer-A4988-Stepper-Motor-Driver-Heatsink-With-Stickers-For-Reprap-US-/142102018890?hash=item2115f0bb4a:g:L8cAAOSwOdpXxU3W http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nema17-stepper-motor-0-9Dgree-1-7A-4leads-for-3D-Printer-Reprap-Ultimaker-DIY-/201024497703?epid=1231650979&hash=item2ecdfe6827:g:nvEAAMXQlgtS32Vf
