Hacking up a Ultimaker 2 Clone - Heater Cores and Sensors


Recommended Posts

Posted · Hacking up a Ultimaker 2 Clone - Heater Cores and Sensors

This is likely a dumb question but I wanted to double check.. before I hut myself lol

Hacking up a Ultimaker 2 Clone and rebuilding the head completely (if I can)

But wanted to check on a few things ahead of time

I see the UM2 uses a 24v heater core.. Will the mainboard handle any standard 24v <40w core like the ones used in MK9/10 heads? (yes I know these are too big for the Ultimaker2 brass block.

Also, does the mainboard support 100k sensors? I know its just a switch in the firmware settings, but does it read these as well? I know most mainboards dont read pt100 sensors without some modifications.. but wasn't sure if this meant the board couldn't read other sensors now.

*please don't hurt me* :O

Thanks!
