Replacement Ultimaker 2 control board

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience buying a new main board from China / Aliexpress?

A new board in europe cost around €350! The price from china with customs duty comes to around €150. A lot cheaper!

Hopefully someone can share their experience!

Regards,

Max

Hi neotko,

Thanks for the info. Should have searched it myself though!

After reading your comments and those of others there were a few things I looked out for!

I think the above link shows a pretty decent replica with power switch soldered on and the plastic (what part?) the right way around! Do you notice anything else wrong with that board other than the quality of certain parts probably being inferior?

Regards and thanks again!

Max
